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.

You're not alone. I'm just completing my PhD and there's no such thing as a pension fund.. my savings are just a cushion for any potential accidents to the family. Now please don't tell me you're only joking there and make me feel worse.
