For many of you, you may be thinking why on earth should I be worrying about my pension when I am in my twenties?? And you’d be right, there really is nothing to worry about once you know what you’re doing, you can keep paying in and forget about it! As we’ve mentioned many times on the podcast, financial literacy is something that is often not addressed within the education system, leaving many young people clueless and having to fend for themselves. Its surprising how many of you listeners have reached out to ask if we could do an episode breaking down the financial jargon surrounding pensions. In this episode Gaby chats to Kia Commodore, creator of the Pennies to Pounds Financial Literacy Platform. They break down pensions and do the research for you, so you don’t have to!
