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.

Does anyone work for the public sector and contribute to a SPSPS pension. Do you have additional pensions with zurich or Irish life?

Yeah separate pension from last job with Zurich. Can’t be relying on that public sector pension, need to work about 100 years in the public sector to reap the benefits of that scheme!
