    If you were to fall terminally ill prior to the age of 55 I think you'd be considered unfortunate. I understand the point of pension plans and I am not arguing that they aren't necessary. What I am saying is the government should've just added 8% on to employers and employees NIC's if that's what they wanted to achieve and been transparent about it.

    Opting out of auto-enrollment will not be an option forever.

    Many people will agree with you but this government's thinking is that the private sector must take care of everything.
