Financial planning in association with Scottish Widows bannerAs a nation, how do we plan for our retirement? That’s the question Scottish Widows’ 10th annual Retirement Report seeks to answer

Now, more than ever, people need the right plan for their future. In the last two years we’ve seen huge changes in UK pensions, with renewed confidence in the economy and the start of auto enrolment – which means the majority of British workers are automatically enrolled into their workplace pensions.

  • The amount people are saving towards retirement has increased from £54 per month in 2006 to £130 in 2014.
