Why are we publishing this?

The Data Bulletin is our main channel for the publication and analysis of data stories, released around once a quarter.

This issue of the Data Bulletin focuses on the latest trends in the retirement income market collected through our Retirement Income Data Request (RIDR). Since April 2015, and the introduction of the pension freedoms, we have collected these data from a representative sample of pension providers.  This Bulletin provides a summary of the latest data for the second half of financial year 2017/18, 1 October 2017-31 March 2018.

The data enable us to monitor trends since the pension freedoms in the retirement income market, which manages around £384 billion of assets. We track what action consumers take the first time they access a pension pot.
