Should the state pension triple-lock guarantee end?MoneySaving Poll Results

Souk

The UK state pension is currently guaranteed to rise in line with average wage growth, inflation or 2.5% - whicheverís highest. This Ďtriple lockí was intended to align pensionersí incomes with others'. But thereís now an election debate over whether the 2.5% element should be removed.

Those who want to lose it say pensionersí incomes are now aligned and, as long as they continue to rise in line with wages or inflation, the money could be better used elsewhere. But others say only the full triple lock protects pensionersí incomes in the future.

Which of these is nearest your view?
