Income Security and a Good Retirement

This report describes the results of explorative, quantitative research into the association between level of secure income and a range of retirement outcomes, for retirees in England with some form of private pension income.

The research was undertaken in the wake of the April 2015 changes to rules on ‘Defined Contribution’ (DC) pension savings, which broke with the previous regime – known as the ‘annuities deal’ – which required DC pension savers to convert their savings into a secure income at retirement.
