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 42 and am the money I have saved is in a South African pension, which is worth fuck all.

At this point, my retirement strategy is to wait for my husband to kick the bucket and claim the life insurance. I'm so fucked. :/
