RE­TIRE­MENT WILL BE A ‘FI­NAN­CIAL STRUG­GLE’ FOR 23% OF WORK­ERS

OLDER work­ers are more down­beat about their chances of hav­ing enough money to en­joy them­selves in re­tire­ment than younger em­ploy­ees, a sur­vey by Aviva has found.

Only one-in-seven (13%) peo­ple aged 56-65 think they will have enough cash to re­ally en­joy their re­tire­ment, as do 12% of 46-55-year-olds.

This com­pares with nearly a quar­ter (24%) of 22-30-yearolds and 19% of 31-45-year-olds, who are con­fi­dent they’ll have enough put by to re­ally en­joy their later years.

Across all age groups, nearly a quar­ter (23%) of work­ers be­lieve their re­tire­ment is likely to be a fi­nan­cial strug­gle.

FOUR-LEGGED FRIENDS ARE IN FOR FES­TIVE TREATS, SUR­VEY FINDS

TWO-THIRDS of dog-owners say they buy Christ­mas gifts for their pets, ac­cord­ing to Amer­i­can Ex­press.

The re­search found that the fes­tive sea­son is a bumper time for the na­tion’s dogs, as dot­ing owners will spend an av­er­age of £18.42 per dog on treats and gifts.

A quar­ter (25%) of dogs will re­ceive a Christ­mas stock­ing, and over one in 10 (12%) will find them­selves dressed for the sea­son in a ca­nine Christ­mas jumper!
