CITY VIEWS: ARE PEOPLE SAVING ENOUGH FOR THEIR RETIREMENT?

DAVID SHEPPARD | LIMPIO OFFICE SOLUTIONS
“ I would say I am saving enough, but other people are definitely not. I know people in my peer group, and the attitude at the moment is live today and worry tomorrow. The money’s all gone anyway.”

JAMES SAMPSON | ANGLO IRISH
“I think people are definitely not saving enough for retirement, especially at the moment with the credit crunch. People change their priorities. They think about the now, not the future. I am personally trying to save, but it is a struggle.”

JOHN BEASLEY | KENNEDYS
“ I think people are probably not saving enough, and that includes myself. It’s probably because of the current economic climate. People need the money now, not later. I am trying to save, but it’s not all that easy.”

MICHELLE ALLEN | HOWDEN INSURANCE
“People are probably not saving enough. Nobody’s really saving anything at the moment. I’ve got a pension scheme with my company but that’s it. By the time I get to retire, I don’t see there being a state pension, so I will need to save.”
