UK - The Trade Union Congress (TUC) has stepped up its campaign to increase education on pensions through its 'Pensions Champions' initiative.
The Pensions Champion initiative will involve training union members who are then able to give advice to fellow workers to how best to plan for their retirements.
In particular, the scheme has sought to reach out to groups which are traditionally at risk of under providing for retirement.
These include women, who typically have a shorter working life due to family commitments; the over 50s; the young, who either do not contribute to a pension or save less than the required amount; ethnic minorities; and the 'at risk' employment sectors, such as construction, retail and the leisure industry.
