Pensions British workers are marginally less worried about the state of their company pensions than they were three months ago, a survey suggests.

While the closure of final-salary schemes has continued to make headlines, along with reports of poor performance from pension funds, a report by Aon Consulting, one of the UK's largest pension administrators, said the number of employees asking employers for pension quotations had fallen by 9 per cent in the past three months. The number of workers requesting information about how much their pensions might be worth in retirement is regarded as a good indicator of the extent to which people are worried about their savings.
