The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) commissioned Ipsos MORI to survey employees’ attitudes towards workplace pensions, in the context of automatic enrolment into workplace pensions. In total 8.3 million people have been automatically enrolled into a workplace pension since 2012. More information about workplace pensions is available at https://www.gov.uk/workplace-pensions/about-workplace-pensions.

The survey findings provide insights into how workplace pensions are viewed and how people with a workplace pension regard the benefits and contributions towards their own workplace pension.

Technical details

In total, 1,462 employees from Great Britain aged 22 to State Pension age and earning £10,000 or more (above the automatic enrolment earnings threshold) were interviewed in-home, face-to-face, from 17 March to 3 April 2017.

Data have been weighted to be representative of the national population profile of GB employees aged 22 to State Pension age.
