From April 2015, the government introduced some of the most significant changes to pensions in almost a hundred years. It believes that individuals who have worked hard and saved responsibly should be trusted to make their own decisions with the pension savings.
In response, the IFoA formed a Working Party of volunteer members (Rationale for retirement behaviour Working Party) to focus on an individual’s decision-making at, and during, retirement. The Working Party has developed a concept of a game with the intention to test users’ behaviour and explore whether their behaviour can be influenced by framing and feedback aspects.
In order to make the game available to a wider audience, the Working Party would like a robust research to inform how the game is presented, what questions are asked and how they are asked. With input from a research team, the IFoA seeks to address the following objectives:
- Objective 1: Concept Development and Design
- Objective 2: Testing and Analysis
This document includes essential information for applicants, including how to apply.
