Makingcents of pensions

50% of our recent makingcents survey respondents haven’t started planning for the future. Find out why a pension is so important and what you should think about when going about organising your pension.

Our makingcents research highlighted that half of those surveyed have yet to start planning for their retirement. Although retirement may seem a long way off, it’s important to remember that most people will be retired for over 20 years. The state pension is about one third of the average wage, so you can see how important it is to start planning early for your future years.

When people talk about pensions there tends to be a lot of jargon, the makingcents pension’s video arms you with basic information to help you go about setting up a retirement plan for the future.  Our budget calculator will also help you work out how much you can afford to put into your pension.
