Not realising that you can now only contribute £3,600pa if you've stopped work is more likely to catch people out if they take point 5 at face value and don't do any research into it.
I've still got a lot of writing and linking to do but hopefully the work in progress forms will be useful and help to improve the overall quality of planning.
Fair points and true but I still contend that the opportunities to spend are far greater after retirement than before, cutting back on a few lattes at work and even the commute costs is going to pale compared to taking cruises, staying away in hotels, eating out every day when away from home on holiday and so on. That's limited before retirement not mainly through affordability but time.
Yes, but not everyone wants to travel extensively.
People may do that but many won't. Also many people don't necessarily want cruises and five star hotels even if they can afford it, it's down to preference as well as time and budget.
Saving is a lost habit. There's going to be a generation far far poorer.
as I think this thread has very useful info.
Agreed, should be made a 'sticky'.
Academic Acceptance for Reverse Mortgages in Retirement Income and notice that in a low interest rate environment it can potentially double the safe withdrawal rate!
Does Asset Allocation Affect Withdrawal Rates? : yes, more equities increase the upside without affecting the downside much.
I don't think that it's fair to conflate those two (as the main cause for a poorer generation). Surely the death of DB pensions will be a far greater factor in terms of future generations being less well off? A few decades ago, every FTSE100 company had a DB pension scheme, now there are 2-3.
