The main aim of the survey was to explore people's attitudes towards pensions and their expectations for retirement, both financial and non-financial, as well as establishing their views on associated topics such as saving, risk and financial decision-making. The baseline survey was conducted in 2006 with a follow-up conducted in 2009. The survey was designed with repetition in mind, with the intention of repeating the survey every two years in order to measure continuity and change in this area.<br> <br> Further information can be found on the NatCen <a href="" title="Attitudes to Pensions">Attitudes to Pensions</a> web page.<br>The <i>Attitudes to Pensions Survey, 2009</i> primarily consists of repeat questions from 2006, to enable time series analysis, but includes a minority of amended and new questions which seek to examine attitudes to new issues and policies – including extended working, pensions reform and planned changes to the state pension age.<br><B>Main Topics</B>:<br>The interview covered: attitudes towards pensions, savings, debt, trust and confidence in government/financial services, expectations for retirement; job details and demographic information
