(PRWEB UK) 8 March 2013
According to statistics released from the Office of National Statistics General life Survey, 38 percent of women working part time were saving into a workplace pension, compared to just 11 percent in 1987. Over the last 25 years the number of women working part time and members of a workplace pension scheme has risen dramatically.
Furthermore the findings suggested that the type of employment influences whether women have a pension. Those working part time in managerial or professional setting are pension members, but that number falls to around 25 percent for those working in manual jobs.
