Walker vs Innospec – Equality wins, but will it cost?


On 12 July 2017, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that civil partners and spouses in same-sex marriages should have the same pension rights and entitlements as people in heterosexual marriages. In particular, this equality should not be restricted according to the period an individual was a member of the pension scheme.

Am I saving enough into my pension?

Working in the pensions industry, this is probably the question I get asked the most. The problem is it’s the hardest question to answer for the majority of people in DC pension schemes. Saving into a pension isn’t like saving for a holiday, a car or even a house deposit. All of those have a definite cost (a house deposit might fluctuate a bit) and once your savings are equal to that cost you can make a purchase.

Decisions, decisions…

The design of the UK pension system is such that retirement income is heavily dependent on earnings during working life. Those who earn the most and save the longest are likely to have the best retirements. The problem is that not everyone is able to work full time for all of their working lives. For many there are fundamental life choices which impact on their ability to do so - such as staying in education and having families.
