Prepare for retirement
The years of retirement account for about one-third of your life. You surely have plans and dreams for this time of life.
What will your pension allow you to do?
You may find the level of statutory pension surprisingly low. Just when you finally have the time to enjoy life, travel and use various services, you may find that your income is low. To top it all, the statutory pension cover may be even lower in the future, as fewer taxpayers will be paying for the pensions of the growing population. Using only I and II pillar solutions the expected level of pension during retirement is only approximately 40% of your current income.
Do not confine yourself to this situation, take action. Provide for a better future by yourself. It is recommended to save each month at least 10-15% of your income to ensure current living standard during retirement. Take steps today: the sooner you start, the better your pension income will be.
