This chapter outlines the gender implications of British pension policy. It looks at the concerns of a range of critics, and discusses the main alternative strategies that are proposed. The discussion is focused on the gender implications of each alternative strategy. It also looks at the concerns that are expressed by a range of commentators, and identifies the reasons why reaching a pensions consensus has proved to be difficult. The chapter considers the main types of proposed rescue plan, and categorises the concerns into three groups: crisis of private pensions, pensioner poverty, and erosion of saving incentives.

Keywords:   gender implications, British pension policy, alternative strategies, pensions consensus, pensioner poverty, saving incentives
