This chapter looks at pension choices and analyses class and gender inequalities in the ability to contribute to the expanding range of types of private pension. It uses data from the General Household Survey. The chapter then studies the characteristics of employees who have chosen personal pensions and those who remained in the state pension scheme. It distinguishes those with access to an occupational pension and those without an occupational pension, while considering the implications for later-life income.

Keywords:   pension choices, class inequalities, gender inequalities, private pension, personal pensions, state pension scheme, occupational pension, later-life income
