Most workers are unaware of reforms

More than half of workers do not know about important reforms being made to pensions next year which will automatically enrol employees into workplace schemes.

Fewer than a third of those aged between 18 and 24 working for private firms and in the voluntary sector were aware of the changes, a survey of 2,000 workers by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) revealed.

Older workers and those in management posts were most aware of the auto-enrolment, which the CIPD said was the biggest reform to pensions for a century.
