Are you saving for your retirement?

Careful monitoring of your pension, whilst keeping commission hungry financial advisers away from your pension is the way to go. My pension fund has grown by 17% per annum over the last five years purely because I have prevented greedy financial advisers from fiddling around with my money. Remember, when churning produces commission, IFAs will wish to churn.

Everything was going fine until I split up with my husband, then became unwell. I can now only work part-time and cash is extremely tight. I 'pay my way' without claiming anything from anyone, but I certainly don't have spare cash to save for retirement. My current employer is now contributing £60 pcm to a pension and I'm most grateful, but I don't expect it to equate to much, and besides which my contract is only another 3 years, so I will have to hope I can survive on what little the state may provide when I get to retire. ....worrying times
