The public scheme has two tiers (a flat‑rate basic pension and an earnings-related additional pension), which are complemented by a large voluntary private pension sector. Most employee contributors contract out of the state second tier into private pensions of different sorts. An income-related benefit (pension credit) targets extra spending on the poorest pensioners.
