What age are you, and how much is in your pension(s)? Retirement

With pensions in the news, I thought this would be an interesting discussion.

I am 30, and have 1 pension that currently contains €62,399.

I currently contribute 15% and my employer contributes 6%. Come January, I will up my contribution to 20%. I would have 2 pensions, but I merged them as my current one has much lower fees. My pension is 100% in Indexed Global Equity.

I’m 37 ~ 186K. I’m contributing 4%, employer contributes 9 % and my AVC contribution is 16%. I have been gradually increasing my AVC percentage over the years to reach the max amount. Pension consists of mostly equities and partially hedged/bonds.
