Private pension policy

Workplace pensions are an important component of overall remuneration, but the balance of what is provided by employers has changed dramatically over the past few decades.  IFS research in this area documents the shifting landscape of workplace pensions, explores the merits of different policies aimed at encouraging saving into workplace pensions, and examines the implications of the shift from defined benefit to defined contribution pension arrangements (including implications for mobility in the labour market and for comparisons of total remuneration between the public and private sectors).
