The Consumers Association is in the throes of planning a roundtable to build up support for its input into the debate on pensions reform.
The CA says questions that still remain to be resolved include fees, delivery and fairness towards consumers.
It welcomes the steps to move forward with stakeholder pensions, but adds that this form of pension has itself thrown up questions about the implementation of nationwide solutions.
Changes to the pensions system must make sure that all citizens are able to afford cover and come with acceptable risks and provide political certainty to enable long-term planning, the CA says.
The roundtable discussions will take place at the CA's london HQ and will involve what it calls "key people" in the areas of financial services, including providers and advisers, in order to obtain an overall view of what areas to address in the wider political debate.
The CA says it believes pension reform will continue to be a key issue for the organisation during the coming two to three years.
