Employees want workplace pensions advice

Pension_planMore than four out of five employees in the UK would welcome advice on pensions in the workplace, research from MetLife Assurance of 1,395 adults aged 18 and over shows.

The survey showed that when given the option of receiving that advice from either their employer, an independent financial advisor (IFA) or a government sponsored approach, IFAs were a strong favourite, chosen by 55% of employees surveyed. Only 17% viewed their employer as the preferred source of advice, with an even smaller proportion (9%) selecting advice from the Government. The remaining 19% indicated no interest in receiving advice in the workplace.
