E? Using oneself with "worker" just doesnt sound right. I think you would use it only with "one" for eg: money one is compelled to put away to take care of oneself... would be ok
money the worker is compelled to put away to take care of himself... also ok if not politically correct.

IMO E)

Since we are talking about "Pensions" therefore workers is right.

Is the OA - B?

usage of "that" is important in my opinion to modify money.

This sentence could have been written this way too :
Pensions, money that a worker is compelled to put away to take care of oneself in later years, are now viewed as a deferred payment of salary

Answer is undoubtedly E. 'One' & 'one's' can never be used to refer to an antecedent other than 'one'. That makes A, B & C out coz here 'one's' & 'oneself' refer to worker, which is wrong. Out of D & E ofcourse E makes more sense.

Themselves, myself, yourself can only be used in sentences where their antecedents are present right there in the sentence. Here worker, the antecedent, is present so the usage is justified.

The key here is Pensions. One worker can't have pensions so it has to be workers ...... themselves

IMO E should be it.
Yes, one and one always go together. It would be grammatically incorrect to use "one" the way it has been used here.

none of them looks good for me.

Isn't the "money workers" odd if you subsitute E in original sentence.

Pensions are now viewed as a deferred payment of salary, money workers are compelled to put away to take care of themselves in later years.
