  • Only 20% of employers provide a full retirement income service for employees at-retirement
  • Almost half (48%) of employers believe that their employees are not aware of the various retirement income options available to them at-retirement
  • More than half (55%) of employers either provide no support or information only for employees at-retirement

In total, the research received 108 responses which were completed online and via paper over 4 months from August to November 2016. The survey targeted key HR, Rewards & Benefits and Pension professionals. 11% of respondents were from the FTSE 350, 36% were from large companies with 500 employees and more, 6% were from SMEs and 47% of respondents chose to remain anonymous.
