The Department of Work and Pensions has created a resource pack that provides information about changes to the State Pension from 6 April 2016. Minister of State for Pensions, Baroness Altmann, explains why it is useful
A message from Baroness Altmann
This is an important time for your pensions. Automatic enrolment has helped over 100,600 employers to enrol over six million more people into a workplace pension since September 2012.
But there is more to come: the State Pension is changing for those who reach State Pension age on or after 6 April this year, and I need your help to explain these changes to your networks.
Your networks see you as a trusted source of information, and it is likely that they’ll come to you with questions about what the changes will mean for them. We want to help you and your contacts answer those questions.
If you don’t know much about the State Pension, for example how to check your State Pension age, don’t worry – we’ve created this pack to give you the information you and your contacts need to understand the changes.
It includes the things people really need to know, plus some very practical materials for you to use – or if you want to know more details then this pack will point you in the right direction. We’ve created an email, an article, key bullet points, factsheets, posters, videos and images. Please, do have a look.
