UK - A National Pensions Day, likely to be held in March, will let the public have their say on the future of the nation's pensions.
John Hutton, the pensions minister, expressed the need for a wide debate on proposals announced last year to plug the country's estimated £60bn pension savings deficit.
Proposals put forward by Pensions Commission chairman Adair Turner will face public scrutiny at various locations in the country.
Turner recommended that a National Pension Saving Scheme (NPSS) be established for those with no workplace pension and that the state retirement age should be raised to at least 67 by 2050.
Workers should contribute 5% of their salaries and employers 3 % to the account.
Hutton said the public would be asked for their views on many issues including; the basic framework for the state pension, the NPSS, and how to ensure women and carers can have an acceptable pension on retirement.
Comments would be fed through to the White Paper on pensions, which the government was currently drafting, in time for it to be tabled in the Spring.
