Can auto-enrolment work before pensions are reformed?

The TUC is warning that the coalition's plans to increase the lower earnings limit at which employers automatically enrol workers into a pension scheme could mean thousands of people miss out.

A recent consultation suggested those earning below £10,000 could eventually be hit by the plan - and unions say that women, who work part-time, would be most likely to miss out.

Ros Altmann, director general of Saga, told Radio 5 live Wake Up To Money why a lower threshold could still be a problem for some people because of the way the current state pensions are set up.
