ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses the introduction of A-Day reforms despite the confusion on the kind of tax-efficient retirement pension pot that can be put aside for the future in Great Britain. He muses on the simple concept for a maximum lifetime pot with nobody minding how it can be filled to provide stable future life. The author comments that A-day is just another crazy idea without the realistic foresight of new complexities and similar past anomalies.
