However, the impact on communities must be understood, considered and mitigated where possible.</p><p> </p><p>The Access to Banking Protocol Standard commits banks to ensure personal and business customers are better informed about branch closures and the reasons for them closing, along with the options they have locally to continue to access banking services, including specialist assistance for customers who need more help. The Access to Banking Standard is monitored and enforced by the independent Lending Standards Board.</p><p> </p><p>The independent financial services regulator - the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) - requires firms to treat their customers fairly, including the elderly and the vulnerable, and has broad and robust powers to enforce breaches of its rules.

star this property answer text <p>The Government has a variety of policies that encourage self-employed retirement saving. Tax relief is provided on pension contributions, representing a significant incentive to save into a pension. As noted in DWP’s review of automatic enrolment in December, we are looking to build on the principles behind automatic enrolment’s success to help the self-employed save for retirement and DWP will be running tests of targeted interventions to help the self-employed save for retirement. As a first step, HM Treasury and DWP are co-hosting a ‘Tech Sprint’ event later this month with the ABI, working with industry and Fintech firms to develop innovative technology-based ideas to help the self-employed save for retirement.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Automatic Enrolment has had great success in increasing participation rates in workplace pensions across the population. 9.4 million employees have been enrolled into workplace pensions since 2012. DWP’s figures show an increase of 44 percentage points in pension participation for those aged 22 to 29 from 2012 to 2016. Additionally, workplace pension participation among eligible men and women has equalised. We want to build on the increase in participation. The minimum contributions required under automatic enrolment will increase from the current 2% of qualifying earnings to 5% in April 2018 and 8% in April 2019.</p><p> </p><p>Furthermore, in April 2017 the government also introduced the Lifetime ISA, allowing younger people to receive a 25% bonus from government on savings of up to £4,000 annually. This encourages the next generation to get into the habit of saving and helps them to simultaneously save for both a first house and for later life, with the same product.</p> more like this
