Working Paper No. 108

By Sarah Vickerstaff, Jan Macvarish, Peter Taylor-Gooby, Wendy Loretto and Tina Harrison

This Working Paper reviews the available literature on trust and confidence in pensions. Although the emphasis is on pensions, it draws on evidence from other fields, including health, in order to investigate the nature, types and components of trust. It also discusses the measurement of trust, the relationships between trust and attitudes and behaviour, and the dynamics of trust.
