Retirement

The current framework for Auto Enrolment combined with the challenges that consumers face and a general lack on engagement means that millions of households will reach retirement with insufficient savings to last for their retirements, leading to potential pensioner poverty and a greater reliance on state support.

TISA’s retirement strategy and policy & technical work aims to help individuals and households build financial resilience for retirement in order to improve quality of life and reliance on state support.
