UK - The Department for Work and Pensions wants employers and the financial services industry to help it find ways to educate people on pensions.
DWP director Hilary Reynolds called on both to offer ideas and views on how to give people the ability to make informed choices about their retirement.
Reynolds is concerned that many do not have access to information and that literature on pensions is often too difficult to understand.
She urged employers to redress the situation by sending out forecasts to defined benefit scheme members of their pensions and by including contribution rates on pay slips.
Current government initiatives on pensions education include providing pension forecasts for the self-employed from May 2003.
Reynolds said the government was considering extending this service to other categories of workers.
