New research by Zurich Insurance has shown that people in the UK are not retiring at the expected age, primarily because they have not planned their finances adequately.
Almost two thirds of Brits at retirement age are thinking of remaining at work, with nearly a third also expecting to have to work as they need the money. Another third though are doing it simply to stay active, in both mind and body, which shows how society and lifestyle has changed said a Zurich Insurance spokesman.
There are so many financial pressures in modern society meaning that retirement costs more than ever. This is a realisation that some people are coming to only now said Zurich Insurance, showing how important good pension planning is.
