In 2003, the PPI published The Pensions Landscape report which found that pensioners’ incomes had risen since 1998 but inequality had increased. 

The pensions landscape has changed significantly since 2003, largely as a result of reforms which arose from findings of the Pensions Commission’s reports.

This report:

  • Brings together existing and new PPI research to consider the likely outcomes for individuals as a result of the suite of reforms.
  • Provides an overview of the policy reforms that have taken place between 2003 and 2016.
  • Considers elements of the wider pensions landscape that have changed during the same period of time.
  • Provides findings from new PPI modelling that projects the possible outcomes from these policy and landscape changes.
  • Considers the policy implications of these developments.
