Citizens Advice Pensions survey

Survey of UK adults aged 50+ on behalf of Citizens Advice exploring their financial behaviour, plans for retirement and knowledge of their pension plan

Two thirds of working UK adults aged 50+ say that they check the value of their pension at least annually. The value of their pension is checked more frequently by the 50+’s than the value of their house, though less frequently than either utility bills or bank statements.

More than half of UK adults aged 50+ holding a defined contribution (DC)  indicate that they would like support from an expert on withdrawing their pension, a higher proportion that would like support on buying a house, buying a car or investing in the stock market.
