Saving for later life: Pensions Minister Guy Opperman questioned by MPs
1 July 2022
Pensions and Financial Inclusion Minister Guy Opperman MP will face questions from MPs in the final session of the Work and Pensions Committee’s inquiry into saving for later life.
- Watch Parliament TV: Protecting pension savers – five years on from the pension freedoms: Saving for later life
- Inquiry: Protecting pension savers – five years on from the pension freedoms: Saving for later life
- Work and Pensions Committee
The inquiry, which is part of the Committee’s wider work examining the impact of the 2015 pension freedoms, is looking at whether households have adequate pension savings for retirement and how the Government can improve outcomes for savers.
With the Committee hearing during the inquiry that around three million people aged between 50 and the state pension age are at risk of not having an acceptable level of income in retirement, Mr Opperman is expected to be asked about the Government’s plans to address this. Questions could focus on the next steps for auto-enrolment, policy on statutory and voluntary contributions and what more can be done to provide advice and support to savers.
The Minister could also be asked about the status of gig economy workers, pensions for the self-employed and how to tackle the gender pensions gap.
