The Gender Pension Gap - How did we get here, and where are we going?

Pensions & benefits DC pensions Policy & regulation
Laura Myers Partner and Head of DC

With the potential of a new generation of gender pension inequality, our new report explores the current circumstances regarding the gender pension gap.

We also provide recommendations for the government, employers and the pension industry on how to tackle the issue. In particular, our analysis has found that the success in reducing gender gaps in state pensions could be undermined in future if inequalities between men and women in workplace DC pensions continue to rise.

In the report, you will find:

  • A review of the research on gender pension gaps.
  • The first detailed analysis of the DWP’s 2023 statistics on the gender gap in private pensions.
  • New projections from LCP on the pensions that men and women will draw in future from the state, private sector DB and DC pensions.
