The study uses data from the first wave of the Wealth and Assets Survey to explore the prevalence of pension saving across the population. It examines the precise influence of individual, household and employer characteristics on participation in pension saving. It investigates the prevalence of occupational and personal pension saving across the population, and the differing behaviour of men and women.

Other themes explored in the study include how individuals expect to fund their retirement, the influence of financial commitments on pension saving, and the role of employers.
