What are the facts for women saving for retirement in the U.K.?
“Many people find it difficult to save enough for retirement. But competing responsibilities and continual income differentials add extra dimensions to that challenge for many women. The proportion of women in the UK saving adequately for retirement remains well below the levels of the male population. Milestones such as maternity leave, raising children or caring for a relative contribute to women having shorter working careers, meaning less opportunity to earn and convert some of those earnings into pension savings.
According to Scottish Widows and figures out this month, half of women are saving adequately for retirement compared to 60% of men.
For example, 58% of UK women admitted to feeling stressed about their financial situation, with 28% prioritising household necessities over savings.
Only 41% of women know what their defined contribution pension pot savings are invested in compared to 52% of men. These findings indicate that when it comes to retirement saving, people want uncomplicated and intuitive solutions.” (Retirement Planner)
