Raising awareness of State Pension changes

06 October 2014

A major new campaign aimed at ensuring today’s workers understand what the new State Pension will give them in retirement is to be launched, Pensions Minister Steve Webb has announced.

The announcement from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) says that under the tagline ‘Your future, your pension’ the communications drive will aim to broaden the public’s understanding of how the State Pension is being changed from April 2016, and what the reforms mean for their household. Advertisements will start appearing later this year.

DWP are also launching a new service giving people a personalised written estimate of what they can expect to receive under the new system, based on their work history and National Insurance (NI) contributions to date.
