Almost half (44%) of British adults believe none of the parties vying for votes in the next general election will resolve current pensions issues, research suggests.
When forced to pick a party despite an overwhelming lack of faith in general, Britons place most confidence in the Tories (20%), with only 15% believing the incumbent Labour government is best placed to sort out Britain's pensions problems.
The Liberal Democrats brought up the rear with 8% in the YouGov poll, commissioned by Beat the Pensions Crisis (www.thepensionscrisis.com), a book and free website which offers consumers help and pensions planning advice.
Brian Wood, co-author of Beat the Pensions Crisis, says: "Seven million people are not saving enough to fund their retirement and this certainly isn't being helped by a constantly shifting pension policy. There is a continual to and fro over the age of retirement and yet another system of personal pension accounts being introduced in 2012.
"It's clear that most people have lost faith in the ability of politicians. Therefore, people must start to find their own answers and take control of their own financial futures - we can no longer rely on the government to do this for us.
"At Beat the Pensions Crisis, we aim to build a community of people united by a real desire to take control of their own retirements and improve them."
Beat the Pensions Crisis's authors will present their findings at a launch event this evening in London.
