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.

Currently have an AVC with 780 in it as I started a few months ago and making minimum due to being bottom rung in the job and needing to have my needs met atm

Thank you. I'm on an incremental scale so I know I'll have it increased long before I reach that scale's max
