Pensions campaign to target young workers

The Pensions Board is planning a new campaign to get young workers to secure their financial futures.

The board says that 25 to 35-year-olds are traditionally slow to make provisions for their retirement.

It says it will be using Pensions Action Week to try to convince them of the benefits of taking out a pension at an early stage, rather than leaving it until later in their working life.
