Aegon comment on the latest CPI inflation figures

AGN

Today’s figures were not unexpected, but all eyes will be on the continuing trend as the impact of the coronavirus tightens its squeeze on the economy. The reality of lockdown is that many of the products and services that make up the basket of goods used to calculate inflation can’t be accessed or demand has fallen to near zero, meaning changes to the way inflation is calculated may be needed if the situation persists for any length of time. Under current rules, the state pension is increased by the highest of earnings growth, price inflation or 2.5% a year. However with likely dramatic changes and significant variability in both price inflation and earnings growth in the coming months, there is a question over whether the Government will see it as both fair and affordable to guarantee state pension increases of at least 2.5% a year. Aegon comment on the latest CPI inflation figures Comment from Steven Cameron, Pensions Director at Aegon following the publication of the latest ONS inflation figures. Since 2016 half the people do not receive full State Pension More than half of people who have reached State Pension age since April 2016 do not receive the full amount of the new State Pension, latest governmen.

Aegon extends premium deferral period

AGN

Following FCA guidelines, Aegon has adapted its terms and conditions to allow customers to defer premium payments for three months to help customers who may be struggling financially due to COVID-19. Instead of cancelling their policy 30 days after their first missed policy payment, we can extend this to 90 days on a one-off basis. During this time their cover will remain in place and will be available if they need to claim. If they have a valid claim during this time, we'll deduct the total amount of unpaid policy payments from their final claim payment." At the end of the agreed payment deferral period, customers will need to repay all missed policy payments by either paying double payments for the same number of months they deferred payment for, or by re-paying the deferred payments in a single lump sum at the end of the 90-day deferral period, Aegon said.

AGN

The number of firms offering defined benefit (DB) pension transfer advice fell “dramatically” in 2019 to just 41 per cent, analysis has revealed. The Aegon Retirement Advice in the UK report, produced in conjunction with NextWealth and Richard Parkin Consulting, showed that a further 17 per cent of firms used to provide DB transfer advice but have stopped doing so. Furthermore, whilst 4 per cent of firms were looking to start offering DB transfer advice in 2018, 15 per cent now intend to “significantly curtail” the volume of business they intend to do over the next 12 months, with a further 3 per cent expected to exit the market completely.
