Who is 'under-saving' for retirement? - Age Concern
Millions of ordinary working people are on track for a poverty-stricken retirement, warns an Age Concern report. Builders, shop workers, hotel staff and factory workers are some of the many who are working their way towards a retirement below the breadline.

The findings prove that plans to force people to save into a private pension will not solve the pensions crisis. Millions of workers cannot afford to save, cannot afford to shoulder more risk, or simply do not have access to a pension scheme at work.

This report "Who is 'under-saving' for retirement?" was written by the Labour Research Department for Age Concern. It provides a comprehensive analysis of existing research into occupational and private pension schemes available to workers in the UK.
