This report presents findings from a 2009 survey with individuals who would be eligible for automatic enrolment under the workplace pension reforms. It contains evidence on their attitudes towards key features of the reforms and their likely behaviour, including whether they are likely to stay in workplace pensions and their likely contribution levels. The 2009 findings update estimates from an earlier survey conducted in 2007 and will be used by the Department for Work and Pensions to estimate the likely impact of the reforms on future pension saving.
This survey was commissioned as part of a wider programme of research and analysis carried out by the Department to inform the implementation and estimation of the likely impacts of the workplace pension reforms.
