TUC offers day in a life of Pensions Minister

The TUC has launched an interactive website claiming to offer users a glimpse of a day in the life of a Pensions Minister, in the run up to the Turner Reports publication.
The site asks what the TUC suggests are the ten big questions facing the Government on the future of pensions. These include issues such as compulsion, scrapping S2P, a universal pension, incentives to save and raising the state retirement age.
The service is part of wordSMART, the TUCs world of work website aimed at providing easy to understand information about pensions.
TUC general secretary Brendan Barber says: Britain desperately needs a new pensions settlement if millions of people in work today are to avoid poverty when they retire. No-one can deny that pensions policy can get very complicated, but the issues at stake come down to some very simple principles. This is why we have launched this new website.
