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.

Excellent start. You are miles ahead of I'd say 90% of the working population for your age. Keep up the great work. I'm 36 with about €5 in my pension. Only started 6 months ago. Should have listened to everyone when I was your age lol 😅
