Vikki Slade, Annette Brooke MP and the Liberal Democrats believe that making sure everyone has a decent, secure income is crucial in creating a fairer society.
That's why Lib Dem Pensions Minister Steve Webb has made sure that pensioners have a fair deal, while protecting tomorrow's pensioners by making it easier for them to save for their retirement.
The Lib Dems in government have:
- Increased pensions by £800 a year since 2010, thanks to our new ‘triple lock’ rule which ensures state pensions always rise with inflation, earnings or 2.5% - whichever is highest.
- Planned to raise the state pension from £107 to around £144, protecting future pensioners with a fair, single tier pension.
- Guaranteed 9 million people an automatic workplace pension, which their boss and the government pay in to, giving everyone the confidence to save.
