Auto Enrolment Strawman Response

Friday, February 15, 2019

Irish Life welcomes the publication of the Pensions Roadmap and the ambitious vision of pension reform set out by it. Irish Life believes that the implementation of an Auto Enrolment retirement savings system (as set out in the Strawman) is a key and fundamental action in addressing the pensions shortfall within Irish Society.

As the population ages, it is incumbent on all stakeholders (the State, employers and individuals) to take responsibility to ensure the best possible outcomes for old age. The extensive and all-encompassing vision within the wide-ranging Pensions Roadmap provides the State with a unique opportunity to create a world class pensions system for the future.
