Work and Pensions Committee
Report and Government response published.
Second Interim Report
First Interim Report
The new State Pension is being introduced in April 2016. Concerns have been raised that many of those who will be affected by the changes do not know enough about the changes or exactly what they will mean for their pensions, especially people who are close to retirement now and may have done most or all of their retirement planning and saving under the "old" system.
The Committee invites written evidence on the way the Government has communicated the changes, and the issues people are facing in understanding the transition to the new State Pension.
Evidence given by Baroness Altmann CBE, Minister of State for Pensions, Duncan Gilchrist, Deputy Director, Contributory Pensions, and Richard Caseby, Director of Communications, Department for Work and Pensions.
Evidence given by Anne Keen, and Lin Phillips, Women Against State Pension Inequality; Kate Smith, Aegon UK, Dr Deborah Cooper, Mercer, and Phil McEvoy, Prospect (at 10.30am).
There are currently no public meetings scheduled.
