Living the dream?
Aon DC pension and financial wellbeing member survey 2018

This year, Aon has extended its annual Defined Contribution (DC) research beyond employees’ pensions and examined their current financial health as well as their expectations for retirement. What we have found is compelling. On the whole, employees are optimistic about their finances, but their perceptions and reality often do not match up.

The report is split into 5 sections:

  • Dreaming of financial peace of mind. This includes insights such as 'most employees do not feel they are saving enough for long term needs.'
  • Real people, real challenges. This includes insights such as '5 in 10 employees cannot afford to save as much as they would like.'
  • Ending up with enough. This includes insights such as 'around a third of employees expect retirement to result in a lower standard of living'
  • Aims and ambitions. This includes insights such as '14% of employees expect to continue working forever'
  • Making financial wellbeing a reality. This includes insights such as '4 in 5 employees in their early career would like support from their employer.'
