ABSTRACT
The article looks at the efforts of the Workplace Retirement Income Commission in handling pension reforms all over Great Britain. The commission, led by ex-British Treasury Select Committee Chairman Lord John McFall, has conducted a study concerning the setbacks of the pension savings system in British workers. The initial results revealed by the study state that 10 million workers, including those who are enrolled automatically to a workplace pension, end up having no pension.
