Preparing for the Future is a new survey of people aged 40 to 75. It asks questions on a range of topics including: what people want and need from work as they get older, how people plan for their retirement, people’s expectations about their pensions or other savings in retirement, and where people go for advice and guidance on retirement planning.
The study explores important topics that affect an increasing number of people in our ageing society. It will help policy makers across government to answer questions such as: How do people plan for their retirement? How well informed are people about the pension choices available to them? What do people want from work later in life?
NatCen Social Research are conducting this study for the Department for Work and Pensions.
We’re Britain’s largest independent social research agency. For the last 40 years we’ve worked on behalf of government and charities to find out what people really think about important social issues and how Britain is run.
One of our interviewers will call you on the phone to arrange an interview at a time that suits you. There’s no need to prepare and you can skip any questions you don’t want to answer.
We understand you may have some questions about our credentials and how we deal with personal information.
