Average Pension In Rotherham

Rotherham's average pension

Have you ever considered whether the contributions you’re making now will help you afford the retirement you deserve? It’s a big, difficult question to tackle, but we’re here to help you find the answer.

We did some research and data crunching and discovered that, on average, persons in Yorkshire:

  • Have a pension of £117,550 on average
  • Have a 79-year life expectancy
  • Should budget for a £27,723 pension deficit.

Everyone has their own vision of what the perfect retirement looks like. Perhaps you’re keen to volunteer at your favourite charity or you’re ready to use your newfound freedom to explore new hobbies or local Rotherham events. Whatever that means to you, you’ll need a steady income to support your goals.

Estimating how much you’ll have in your pension pot at retirement and comparing it against the above figures is a good start. Does this figure fall short of what you expected? If you’re not sure and would like personalised advice on your situation, it’s wise to speak to an expert.

We work with financial advisers around Rotherham and Yorkshire and can link you with the best qualified expert for your specific needs.

Our homes play a huge role in our wellbeing and happiness. Your home is a place of safety, comfort and memories. Your home can also provide another source of retirement income later down the line.

If you’re happy to stay in your current home, you have many options such as renting out a room or even equity release to free up cash for retirement. But if it’s time for a fresh start, downsizing could be a smart option, too.

The average house price in Rotherham is £181,953 according to Rightmove data. This figure has risen a whopping 12% over the past year and it could rise further as more people seek to get on the property ladder. Rising demand could mean it’s a good time to speak to an adviser about the hidden value in your home.
