This is the cover of Research report 5: The under-pensioned - disabled people and people from ethnic minorites

This research looks at the likely future pension incomes of disabled people and people from ethnic minorities.

It asks:

  • what are the pension characteristics of disabled people and people from ethnic minorities, for example, working patterns and current pension provision?
  • what future pension incomes might people in these groups have?
  • how much will pension reforms help them?
  • what effect might future policy decisions have?

The study follows research by the Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) in 2003, which found that women, disabled people and people from ethnic minorities were ‘under-pensioned’ (have lower-than-average levels of pension savings and income).
