The government has been criticised for excluding pensions from a poster which aims to inform the public on the various savings vehicles available.
The infographic, published 3 January, includes details on the Lifetime ISA (LISA), which is due to launch in April, the Help to Buy ISA, and premium bonds.
Pensions industry figures were quick to criticise the graphic, noting the poster includes a figure of a couple stating they were "saving for later life", which is attached to a box giving information about the LISA.
A similar document, published in January 2016, did reference pensions, giving information on Freedom and Choice, which was introduced by the Treasury in 2015.
Hargreaves Lansdown head of retirement policy Tom McPhail said the poster showed the Treasury and Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) were failing to work together on pension policies.
"This is illustrative of the government's struggle to present a coherent joined-up policy on savings, investments and provision for later life," he said. "It's as if they've completely forgotten about pensions and help to save.
"The Treasury and the DWP have to be able to show that their respective policies across long-term saving, retirement and the ageing society actually join together in ways that work for ordinary investors."
Pensions policy is split between the DWP and the Treasury, with the former having a greater focus on workplace pensions, while the latter is more concerned with personal pension pots.
However, in recent years, there has been a growing view that the Treasury has taken on a broader remit, particularly through Freedom and Choice.
Aegon pensions director Steven Cameron shared the concerns and argued the leaflet promoted ISAs as retirement solutions.
"The Treasury leaflet is effectively a promotion of saving through the ever-growing list of ISAs, with premium bonds looking increasingly out-dated," he said. "But with the Treasury having given the LISA a specific retirement dimension, it's no longer possible to separate out saving through ISAs from pensions.
"We'd urge the Treasury to bring balance to the leaflet by also highlighting the benefits of saving through workplace and other pensions."
Responding on Twitter, former pensions minister Ros Altmann blasted the leaflet as "misleading".
"This infographic is funded by taxpayers, designed to educate the public but highly misleading," she wrote. "This is really unacceptable - to mention premium bonds and ISAs, but not pensions is partial."
The Treasury said the poster was intended to be a "snapshot" of savings options available in 2017, and was in no way intended to be exhaustive. It also added that last year's document mentioned pensions as it particularly wanted to highlight the Freedom and Choice reforms.
A spokesperson added: "We back savers at every stage of their lives and it is our job to raise awareness of the savings products the public can access in the year ahead.
"It goes without saying that the government supports pensions - that's why we introduced auto enrolment, which is already benefiting over 7 million people, and our landmark pension freedoms."
