The article reports an announcement by the government of Great Britain that employees' pension contributions into the new personal accounts planned for 2012 are to be limited to £3,600 a year. The figure is intended to ensure focus on low earners and does not undermine existing company provision. The limit will allow a typical worker to build up a retirement income worth two-thirds of their salary.
