This briefing note examines questions in relation to the adequacy of public service pension provision, including: 1) how to measure adequate levels of resources in retirement?; 2) what should be considered an adequate level of resources in retirement?; and 3) should a full state pension and a full public service pension ensure that people have adequate resources in retirement or should room be left for individuals to make their own arrangements?.
