UK - The government is becoming "increasingly out of touch" with people over pensions, a survey commissioned by Help the Aged shows.
It found that 70% of people do not trust the government to provide unbiased information and only one person in nine believes the government will provide a decent state pension in future.
It found that 45% of people do not understand the current state pension system and 20% do not know how they will survive financially in retirement.
Help the Aged head of public affairs Mervyn Kohler said: “The government is losing the trust of the public over pension provision and is increasingly out of touch.
“This survey shows that the working population recognises they need to do something in terms of pension provision but do not know what the options are.”
