Government explains state pension on YouTube

The government has taken to YouTube to explain upcoming changes to the state pension.

The PensionTube channel, run by the department for work and pensions, has posted clips of experts including pensions minister Steve Webb, the older workers business champion Ros Altmann and specialists from industry bodies.

So far, videos posted on the channel have been used to explain changes to the state pension, set to come into force in April 2016, but a spokesman said it would be used to tackle broader issues around pensions.
