Get the retirement you want: employer toolkit


Planning for later life is essential so people can enjoy the retirement they want.

The new DWP ‘Get the retirement you want’ campaign encourages people to think about their future and actively plan for the retirement they want.

It explains how the State Pension is a foundation for their retirement income and encourages them to think about how they could build on it, for example with a Workplace or Private Pension.

Please help us spread the importance of saving for later life by sharing our messages, tools and advice with your employees and contacts.
