NEW REPORT: Self-sufficiency is the key

    The Centre for Policy Studies has brought out a report by leading pensions expert, Michael Johnson entitled Self-sufficiency is the key: addressing the public sector pensions challenge


    In this detailed investigation into the future of public sector pensions, Michael Johnson:

    • shows that taxpayers should not be liable for plugging the £10 billion annual shortfall in public sector pensions
    • recommends that public sector pensions should move to a defined contribution basis (rather than the currently prevalent final salary basis).
    • recommends that the key principle of public sector pensions reform should be self-sufficiency
