Detail

Millions of people in the UK are not saving enough for retirement. Automatic enrolment aims to increase workplace pension saving in the UK and forms part of a wider set of pension reforms designed to enable individuals to save towards achieving the lifestyle they aspire to in retirement.

The Automatic Enrolment Evaluation Report 2013 brings together the latest evidence to show what has happened since automatic enrolment began and updates key indicators that will be used to monitor progress throughout implementation.

This publication focuses on the private sector only, to monitor the trends in pension saving over time for this sector, broken down by industry, employer size, earnings and age. The methodology used is identical to that used within the evaluation report.
