The TUC annual pensions conference on 1 Feb 2017 assessed the key issues that will come under scrutiny in 2017. We can expect the outcome of a review of state pension age, a Green Paper on defined benefit pensions, and a review of automatic enrolment.

The event had a line-up of senior pensions figures, with keynote speeches from Pensions Minister Richard Harrington; Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Debbie Abrahams, John Kay, economist and writer and Sofia Stayte from the Independent review of state pension age.
