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.

41 with 140k, contributing 25% + employer adds 5%
I should have started and maxed out earlier but it was not clear to me at the start when I moved to Ireland and also plenty bad advice. The hope is to move back home in 10 years and hopefully my pension will provide enough.
