Protecting pension savers – five years on from the Pension Freedoms: Accessing pension savings

Inquiry

This inquiry is looking at how savers are prepared and protected to move from saving for retirement to using their pension savings.

This is the second of our three-part inquiry, looking at decisions make about accessing their pensions. We concluded taking evidence on our first part, pension scams, in January 2021. We are interested in:

• The options open to people when they come to access their pensions

• The advice and guidance which is available

• The information people need to make an informed choice about retirement products.
