NEW RESEARCH PUBLISHED today has said that 55% of retired men receive a private or occupational pension, compared to only 28% of women. 

The Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) said that retired women have around 35% less income to live on compared to men on average

The ESRI said that the gender pension gap is down to a “complex mix of factors”, and this research echoes other studies which have shown that women are far less likely to be preparing for their retirement than men. 

So, today we’re asking you? Are you saving for a pension?

Poll Results:

Yes (5259)
No (1746)
No, but I want to (1705)
I'm already retired (652)
