Rothesay supports Pension Awareness Day 2015

Rothesay Life are proud to be sponsoring Pension Awareness Day.

What is Pension Awareness Day?


Pension Awareness Day (PAD) is an award-winning campaign that takes place annually on 15th September. The aim of the day is to promote the importance of saving for the future and to alert the nation that it is not saving enough for retirement. 
The campaign also aims to encourage pension providers and employers to use more simple language and to look for more creative ways in how pension messaging is communicated.

Why Pension Awareness Day?

The initiative was devised in response to concerns that people are not saving enough for their retirement. According to a recent report by the government, almost 12 million people are failing to save enough for their future. 
This coupled with an increasing ageing population and uncertainty over the changes to the state pension, means that despite auto-enrolment being introduced to the workplace, it is clear there is still a long way to go in equipping people with the tools and information they need to help them save more.

Pension Awareness Day 2015

2015 has seen major changes and reform to pensions, therefore what more appropriate time to get out amongst the people of Britain and find out how they feel about their financial futures, discuss their worries or concerns and provide guidance and support.  
The plan is to drive a ‘Pension Awareness’ double-decker bus across the country over a 5-day campaign. The journey will take place from Monday 14th September and will finish on Friday 18th September 2015.  
The tour will start in Edinburgh and will stop off in Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham and London along the way.
The bus is open to absolutely everyone to come along and find out more about pensions, auto-enrolment and saving for the future.
