star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>Under the current system, low paid workers are able to supplement their earnings by claiming support from tax credits. However, tax credits do not make any allowance for mortgage interest payments. Similarly, when Universal Credit replaces the tax credit system, there will be no entitlement to help with mortgage interest during any period in which the claimant is in paid work.</p><p> </p><p>However the earnings rules are far more generous in Universal Credit. This means that most people, particularly those on low incomes, have a significantly greater incentive to move into work than under the current system.</p><p> </p><p>The vast majority of people claiming UC will be better off in work: even if they work part-time and even if they receive a low hourly rate of pay. For example, a lone parent receiving the average amount of mortgage interest who takes up a job that pays the national minimum wage will be better off than under the current system if he or she works just 7hours a week.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>In September 2013 we published the “Framework for the analysis of future pension incomes” which contained details of our modelling of adequate retirement incomes. Recognising that an individual's income in working life affects the retirement income that they would deem to be adequate, we use replacement rates (the ratio of retirement income to working age income) instead of a single income value to assess adequacy.</p><p> </p><p>We use the following set of five replacement rate targets as determined in the Pensions Commission's 2004 report to define adequate replacement rates:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Average annual equivalised gross household earnings between 50 and State Pension Age (2014 earnings terms)</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Target replacement rate for adequate retirement income</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Under £12,300</p></td><td><p>80%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>£12,300 to £22,700</p></td><td><p>70%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>£22,700 to £32,500</p></td><td><p>67%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>£32,500 to £52,000</p></td><td><p>60%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Over £52,000</p></td><td><p>50%</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>To account for income sharing among couples, we use equivalised household level income for both working age and retirement incomes.</p><p> </p><p>Using the Department's Pensim2 model we look at the simulated replacement rates of individuals reaching State Pension age between 2014 and 2059, yielding around 27.9 million individuals in our adequacy measure.</p><p> </p><p>Our analysis shows that we expect there around 56 per cent (around 15.7 million) of those individuals to have an adequate replacement rate. It also shows that around a) 55 per cent of men and b) 57 per cent of women in our measure will have an adequate replacement rate.</p>
