Personal pensions statistics

HMRC statistics on contributions to personal pensions and the overall cost of private (non-State) pension tax relief.

These statistics provide information on the value of contributions to non-occupational personal pensions, and estimates of the cost of tax relief in respect of employer and individual contributions to personal and occupational non-State registered pension schemes.

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has reviewed the methodology behind all of the tables and has consequently made some revisions. All of the methodology is explained in the full statistics release along with additional analysis and commentary.

HMRC has also taken the opportunity to renumber the tables to better reflect the publication timetable.

  • table PEN1 - was previously Table 7.16
  • table PEN2 - was previously Tables 7.4 & 7.5 now combined.
  • table PEN2.1 - was previously Table 7.4
  • table PEN2.2 - was previously Table 7.5
  • table PEN3 - was previously Table 7.10
  • table PEN4 - was previously Table 7.11
  • table PEN5 - was previously Table 7.12
  • table PEN6 - was previously Table 7.9
