300,000 more women have missed out on a workplace pension in the past year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Using data from the Pensions Policy Institute (PPI), our report looks at the impact COVID-19 has had on the most financially at-risk groups in our society.

Case studies

In other aspects of my life I have been treated unfairly and I wouldn’t want that to happen to anyone, not now and not when they retire. The closer we can get to equality, even in small things like pensions, the more equal the world is.
Jason, full-time worker
Of course I worry about the future, but as of now my current financial situation is much more important so I often just live day to day, month to month.
Catherine, multiple jobholder, single mum and carer
Get in there as soon as you can. It’s a no brainer when somebody is giving you free money, when they are willing to chip in 5% or even 8% on top. So to lose out on that just seems very foolish.
