Commenting on today’s data which shows the success of auto-enrolment, Royal London pension specialist, Helen Morrissey, said:

“Today’s data shows the enormous success auto-enrolment has had in getting Britain saving for retirement. It is also positive to see employers getting the support they need with 70% of small and micro employers saying they found the ongoing administration of their scheme easy. We now need to build on this success by widening the scope of auto-enrolment so that it includes the self-employed – a group that have up until now been underserved by pensions.”
