The state pension age has become one of the hottest topics of debate between the political parties and the electorate ahead of the General Election this weekend.  Given that the research was conducted during the election campaign period, it raises the question as to whether the heightened awareness and conversation around pensions impacted the findings, which include:

  • 29% of adults without a pension are planning to start one this year
  • More than two thirds (69%) of those with a pension said that they planned to increase their contributions in the future.
