Blackstone's Guide to the Pensions Act 2004 puts the provisions of the Pensions Act into context, and provides a clear and concise explanation of the impact of the changes introduced. The Guide contains a full analysis and explanation of the legislation plus a copy of the Act. It is an invaluable resource for practitioners, employers and trustees in the field.

The Pensions Act 2004 is the most substantial change to pension law and practice since the Pensions Act 1995. The new provisions provide a statutory framework for the government's proposals for pension reform, and form part of a wider package of measures for restructuring the basis of state and private pension provision. The new Act also sweeps away and replaces large portions of the existing regulatory regime for pensions.
