The BBC reported today (September 19) that the number of people actively paying into a workplace pension scheme dropped for the third year running in 2011. The statistics came from the Office for National Statistics and the fall from a dip in membership in the private sector.
A new policy however will be put in place in October that will automatically enrol workers into a scheme unless they opt out. It is hoped that this will encourage more people to save for old age.
Pensions are regularly in the press and discussed in Government making them a prominent issue. For help and advice regarding your pension scheme you can contact Mark Bugden or visit www.review-my-pensions.co.uk .
