Proceedings of the RPRC Forum: Does the UK’s reform of pensions have lessons for New Zealand?

The presentations from the RPRC’s 23 September forum Does the UK’s reform of pensions have lessons for New Zealand? are now available online in the Forum Proceedings.

The Retirement Commissioner’s discussion document, Focusing on the Future, was released on 9 October and the Financial Services Council’s report How to SuperSize Retirement Income was released on 14 October.

The good news is that ageing and retirement policies are now on the political agenda. The RPRC will provide critical analysis of the two reports in the coming months.

    Good news. I know your analysis will include the emphasis on DDP and its effects on spousal benefits. There is however very little mention if both partners have their total NZ Super wiped out because they are both having overseas workplace pensions . In our case approx 20 years working in each country.
