Trials to tackle the self-employed savings crisis

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has announced an initiative to get more self-employed people saving for later life.

The new programme partners with self-employed trade body IPSE, as well as pensions specialists NEST Insight, Aegon and Smart Pension.

Together, they are now developing a series of behavioural trials to test different tools, as well as messaging and presentation approaches on self-employed people.
