PPI Consortium Research Project: Auto-enrolment

Commissioned project - The Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) published a series of research reports that investigated the potential impact of auto-enrolment into private pensions on individuals and their levels of pension saving but also on the shape of the private pension market.

These reports from the Pensions Policy Institute will serve as a guide to the possible impact of policy as it will be implemented, and they will also form a baseline against which the future impact of auto-enrolment can be measured. The reports addressed the following questions:

  1. What level of pension contribution is needed to obtain an adequate retirement income?
  2. How can older workers be helped to benefit from automatic enrolment?
  3. Will automatic enrolment increase pension saving?

The series was sponsored by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), B&CE Benefit Schemes and the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA).

A consortium of major sponsors supported particular research projects. These include:

  • Defined Contribution (DC) Investment Forum
  • Association of British Insurers (ABI)
  • Prudential
  • Legal and General.

IFoA representatives sat on the project Steering Committee.

For each part of the project there is a published, printed research report, which was accompanied by a launch event (hosted by the report’s major sponsor)

Timelines of projects:

  1. Adequacy: January-September 2013
  2. Older workers: July 2013 -January 2014
  3. Savings: December 2013-July 2014.
