Legal & General pensions survey

Survey of British adults on behalf of Legal & General on the topic of pensions

Half of British adults (49%) agree that there need to be changes to the way that pensions are taxed, and only one in eight (13%) agree that the way that pensions are currently taxed is fair for the whole of society. Britons overwhelmingly think that pensions should not be taxed, with three quarters (73%) saying this.

More than half (54%) are worried that future pensions reform will leave them worse off than under current rules, and the same proportion (54%) agree that changing the tax system on pensions now is just a stepping stone to increasing the tax that people pay on their pensions in the future.
