Amy Bennett was one of hundreds who completed the Ocean Finance Pension Survey and entered the competition to win a cool ipad mini!

Congratulations to Amy and all who participated in the survey which revealed some surprising results about what you think about pensions. [no_toc]

KEY TAKEOUTS FROM PENSION SURVEY

  • Only 1% of respondents said they would trust their bank to review their pension performance.
  • 37% of people in the last 3 years have increased their pension contributions whilst 13% have stopped altogether in that period.
  • 67% of people did not consider the current state non-contributory pension of €230.30 per week to be sufficient to meet their future financial needs, with €514 per week being the average identified as being necessary at retirement.
