How do you plan to sustain your current lifestyle while planning for the future?  Thinking about a pension is a great first step - a pension is a practical and cost-effective way for you to plan for your retirement.

Only 47% of Irish workers have a pension* and as we’re all living longer, it means that more and more people will have a gap in their savings, and might not be able to sustain their lifestyle when they retire.  The good news is that it’s never too late to start a pension plan to help you enjoy the longest holiday of your life – your retirement!

You can take a first step to shaping your future now: work out what your pension gap is by using Aviva’s simple calculator at www.mindthepensiongap.ie
