    MSE Poll: How much are you worth (or do you owe)? 8th May 18 at 5:37 PM
    Poll started 8 May 2018

    Excluding your home or any student loans, how much savings (or debt) do you have? To answer the question, you first need to do a little sum:

    1. Add up: the total value of your assets such as your savings & pension (excluding your home).
    2. Subtract: outstanding debts - exclude student loans & mortgage (if you have a second property or buy-to-let include that in the sums though).

    Then whether you've "net worth" or "net debt", pick your relevant option:

    How do you value a pension you're receiving?

    My occupational pension is by far my largest asset after my house.

    How the heck am I supposed to figure out what my pension is worth?
    I know what I will roughly get if I continue working for the next 26 years at the same pay, but I don't know what the pot is worth.
