Pensions for girls

We asked several girls what they thought a pension was and how it works. Their answers
were funny, sad and surprising – and provide food for thought for all generations.

International Women’s Day on Monday 8th March

To celebrate International Women’s Day on Monday 8th March, NOW: Pensions have joined with Debate Mate and UN Women UK for an exciting debate – “Is The Future Female?” with students from schools around the UK. This will be followed by an address from the Executive Director of UN Women UK, Claire Barnett.

This event will highlight the achievements of the powerful female trailblazers of the past and provide inspiration for the next generation and future leaders.

Children of all ages are encouraged to attend for what should be a highly enjoyable and lively event, and everyone’s welcome – real change can’t happen without support from all genders.

How we’re challenging the gender pensions gap

Workplace pension

3 million women are missing out on workplace pensions as they don’t meet the criteria for auto enrolment into a workplace pension.

Family carer top-up

Introducing a ‘family carer’ top-up would help about 3 million women and 300,000 men top up their pension savings after taking time out to care for children and elderly relatives.

Multiple part time jobs

Including income from additional jobs would push an additional 80,000 people over the £10,000 threshold for auto enrolment – 60,000 of whom would be women.
