Steve Webb's Pension Clinic

Steve Webb's Pension Clinic

Our regular pension clinic has been taken over by Steve Webb, Minister of State for Pensions between 2010 and 2015. His fortnightly columns are designed to help keep you up to date with pension policy and the practical things you should be doing to make the most of your retirement income.

During his time as pensions minister, Steve implemented major reforms to the state pension system, oversaw the successful introduction of automatic enrolment into workplace pensions and played a key role in the new pension freedoms implemented in April 2015. He was a Liberal Democrat MP from May 1997 to May 2015, having previously been professor of social policy at Bath University.

The insights contributed by our previous pensions expert Dr Ros Altmann, who became pensions minister in the Conservative government following the May 2015 general election, are also still available here.
