The Pensions Policy Institute is an educational charity set up in 1997 to carry out expert independent research and analysis on UK pension policy. It is non-political, and provides high quality, independent information and analysis to inform government decision makers and advisors, pension providers, employers, unions and the wider public. Its aim is to be an authoritative voice on pensions policy and retirement income provision in the UK. It produces a series of briefing notes and reports, and also produces responses and submissions to Government enquiries and consultations.
The organisation is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity, which is based at King's College, Drury Lane, London.

Scope and content/abstract:
The collection consists of reports (discussion papers, research papers, technical papers, working papers, briefing papers and reference manuals) produced by the Pensions Policy Institute between Sept 2002 and Mar 2010. Some reports are only available in an electronic format as PDFs (currently held on two CDs).
The series of reports have been arranged and numbered in the order they were published: if the reports had more than one part they listed under the same number and distinguished by a letter A or B. This numbering system has been used consistently across both formats.
The series does not include the Pensions Policy Institute's first report Retire at 72 (Feb 2002), the mid-project review of Shaping a stable pensions solution (Oct 2005) (paper 22) or the participant paper outlining case studies for the TUC's Pensions Champion training programme (Jul 2009) (paper 47).
