This week's Budget is tipped to be more restrained around pension policy compared to previous ones.
Here is PP's guide to what we can expect from chancellor Philip Hammond.
Each year there is speculation the government could tinker with pension tax relief.
It is estimated it costs the government about £48bn annually to underwrite saving into a pension, with HMRC figures released at the end of February showing it cost the Treasury £3bn morein 2015-16 than the previous year.
With the total figure of tax relief growing from £21.8bn in 2014-15 to £24.8bn last year, the temptation to cut relief could be too tempting according to former pensions minister Sir Steve Webb.
"The Treasury might have been thinking ‘we can't fish in that pond again, we can't do more on pension tax relief because we've already cut it several times and are close to the bone'.
"But what these figures are saying is that there's billions and billions of pounds being spent on pension tax relief, therefore this increases the risk that a chancellor who has spending pressures on one side, and is quite constrained on where he can find revenue on the other, might go back for another bite."
In last year's Autumn Statement the chancellor announced the Money Purchase Annual Allowance (MPAA) - the maximum annual amount individuals can contribute to a defined contribution pension after having previously accessed a pension flexibly - would be cut from £10,000 to £4,000 per annum from this April.
The government's consultation on the MPAA ended in mid-February and it is likely Hammond will give its final views on the measure.
Prudential head of technical Les Cameron said: "The government is worried about people abusing the system, but the solution provided risks catching a lot of ordinary savers."
If the government presses ahead with slashing the MPAA, the government might abolish the lifetime allowance, according to AJ Bell senior analyst Tom Selby.
"If the chancellor does proceed with the cut to the MPAA he may try and soften the blow by removing the lifetime allowance. This would be a welcome move as it would greatly simplify things for pension savers and remove the danger they get penalised for achieving good investment growth."
The chancellor could mention the topic of long-term care, its effect on the National Health Service and how this could be funded by pension or retirement savings.
Barnett Waddingham senior consultant Malcolm McLean said: "We could see some discussion of long-term care and how it could be funded. He could announce some short-term money to help those in need and then go onto discuss other ways to fund it. Two ideas which have been proposed are allowing people to use their pension pots to finance care in old age or some type of care ISA. The chancellor has to be careful as both of these ideas could have a negative impact on pensions."
Modest rise in public spending
A report by Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Research said the bank expects slightly looser fiscal policy in the near-term with Hammond likely to have bit more money courtesy of better than expected growth since last year's EU referendum.
It expects Hammond will spend some of it on public services but also warned borrowing is likely to overshoot forecasts. It does not think there will be a drastic loosening of the purse strings or a deviation from austerity policies.

The Pension Schemes Bill has completed its third reading, crossing its latest hurdle in the House of Commons.
An amendment to the Pensions Schemes Bill which would have seen people given a pre-booked Pension Wise appointment ahead of accessing their retirement savings has been defeated.
A proposal to ensure savers receive a Pension Wise appointment prior to accessing their retirement pot has received cross-party support in parliament, while Labour seeks net-zero pensions by 2050.
Pension scams are not just about the money lost, but the lives devastated, says Nicola Parish, so the industry must unite to defeat this scourge.
