12 million people in the UK are not saving enough for their retirement

Retirement planning

According to the Department for Work and Pensions, 12 million of us are not saving enough for retirement. This is an area that has undergone significant change, with the introduction of workplace pensions automatic enrolment and new freedoms around how people can use their pension savings. While automatic enrolment will see more people saving into pensions, some people will need to save more to have an adequate income in retirement. The ability to access pension money from age 55, and have the freedom to make their own income choices, may also have an impact on later life.
