          Pension industry accused; Steve Webb MP; Auction safety

          Duration: 30 minutesFirst broadcast:Saturday 14 December 2013
          Every year 400,000 newly retired people buy an annuity - a pension for life. But there was coruscating criticism this week of the way annuities are sold. 'Excessive' profits, 'hidden' commission, 'weak' regulation - just three of the phrases used by the Financial Services Consumer Panel which advises the Financial Conduct Authority. After years of reviews and endless guidance why is the annuities market still broken? And are pensioners really being burgled?
          Everyone who has already reached state pension age by 5 April 2016 will be able to buy extra pension from October 2015. Details of the scheme were published yesterday but failed to answer the key question - how much will it cost? The maximum boost is expected to be 25 a week. And we know the deal will be cost neutral. So even an extra 1 a week index-linked for life is likely to cost at least many hundreds of pounds to buy. The Pensions Minister explains why he's doing it and why he isn't revealing the price.

          Lloyds Bank was fined a record 28 million this week for paying staff huge bonuses to sell insurance and investments to customers with little regard for their suitability. It earned 212 million in commission from the potentially unsuitable sales of more than a million products to nearly 700,000 customers. But the bank expects to pay compensation to less than 12,000 of them. It will choose who gets it. And its customer complaint lines are still high-cost 0845 numbers.
          A well-known auctioneer refused to give a refund when a smoky quartz Faberge seal which it sold for 2600 turned out to be a fake. After Money Box intervened the auctioneer did pay up - nine months after the sale. But what are your rights when you buy at auction and the item is not as it was described?

            Well done Celestine. Bit of a rushed section at the end of the pension annuities but you got all the main points across really well.
