People should consider paying into a pension as early as possible.

Research from Brewin Dolphin show that for a target net pension of £20,000 at age 68 – excluding the state pension currently set at £115.95 per week for a single person – 25-year-olds would need to find £790 per month, including their employer’s contribution.

However if the employee waited until they were 35, the monthly payments would be £1,145, and ten years later it would cost £685 more per month.

Starting a pension savings plan may not be top of your priorities, but you may be surprised how much of a difference starting earlier could make to your future – and you should consider the risks of delaying your pension contributions.
