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.

In my previous employment I didn't want to contribute at all...so only put in 3%, and my employer also contributed 3%. I have about 10-12k sitting in that. Currently (employed 2 years) sitting on 15k. 5% by me, 10% by my employer and I play with my AVCs monthly depending what's going on. I wish I put more money into my pension in my previous job instead of drinking it 🙈
