I checked my pension pot on the weekend and I saw that my pension is sitting at £319.01, not much but I have something. I was lucky because the finance manager at one of my former employers convinced me to join the group employee pension scheme and I did. I am so glad that I did because it means I do have an asset of sorts that I can add to my financial portfolio.
I am hoping to grow this pension pot as a cushion for retirement. I want to contribute to it this year but then I actually got thinking. Are pensions popular amongst women or are they the type of financial products that young people under the age of 35 are not thinking about?
Would you consider getting a pension?
