We propose following independence to:
continue with the roll-out of automatic enrolment into a workplace pension
establish a Scottish Employment Savings Trust for people with low to middle earnings
launch a Financial Capability Strategy to help build people’s skills, knowledge and understanding about personal finance
work with the pensions industry in Scotland on the design of new pension products that will provide greater certainty to savers about the final value of their pensions
improve pension information, giving people personalised feedback on saving for their retirement
consider whether adjustments to tax relief arrangements would further incentivise saving
