Unprepared Brits set to struggle in retirement

22 Feb 2013

Brits unprepared for retirement?

A recent 15-nation survey found that Britons are the least prepared for retirement, with average consumer savings only adequate to fund the first seven years of retirement*.  Our latest consumer poll has reflected these findings, revealing just 14% feel they are financially on track for retirement, while almost half surveyed (45%) said they will face a fall in income when they retire.  With other financial pressures including mortgages and the cost of raising children often delaying consumers' retirement planning, how can we encourage them to prepare for retirement earlier?  Let us know your thoughts in our LinkedIn discussion.
