In times past, many people would retire from their job with a nice pension to live comfortably. In recent times, the burden of retirement planning has often fallen on individuals instead. That means many people are moving toward their retirement years without having a solid plan for their future.

State pensions can be a key source of retirement income in many economies, but while they may provide a foundation, they may not be enough to live on. Many people have pensions through their employer, but these schemes are less common than they used to be and also might not prove sufficient. The bottom line is that it’s up to you to make sure your future is taken care of.
