Average pension pot and
income comparison by region

Average pension pot and income comparison by region

How does your region compare?

Industry experts, Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA), suggest that to have a moderate standard of living in retirement, a couple needs an income of around £34,000 a year (£41,400 for those living inside London). Yet only about 39% of UK households are on track to achieve this.

Use the map below to discover how your region fares against this industry standard. Plus, find out your region’s average pension value, household income, expenditure and more.

Although everyone’s personal circumstances will be different, getting an idea of how your household's situation compares to others in your area can give you peace of mind. It can also give you an indication of whether you’re saving enough for your future.

This isn’t personal advice. If you’re not sure what’s right for you, seek advice. Money in a pension isn’t accessible until age 55 (rising to 57 in 2028). Sources: HL Savings and Resilience Barometer/Oxford Economics, unless quoted otherwise. The information is correct as at July 2023.
