By Elizabeth Clery, Alun Humphrey and Tom Bourne

This report presents the findings from a 2009 survey that explores people’s attitudes towards pensions and their expectations for retirement as well as views on other topics related to planning and saving for later life. The findings update and expand on the first Attitudes to Pensions Survey which was conducted in 2006 and present a detailed picture on how attitudes to pensions and financial planning for later life have remained stable or changed since 2006.

The findings are based on a representative sample of 1,654 adults in Great Britain aged 18-69.
