Welcome to the Retirement Quality Mark!
Individuals with defined contribution (DC) pension scheme savings now have the flexibility to take their benefits as they choose. With this choice comes the need for more support and guidance and it is no surprise that 85% of consumers think it is important for a good retirement product to be independently accredited by a third party*. We are launching the Retirement Quality Mark (RQM) which meets that need and allows consumers to make informed decisions on which at-retirement products meet a high standard.
