New research from Scottish Widows Bank reveals one in six pensioners in the UK have an outstanding mortgage on their home – each with an average debt of £45,313 – making a nationwide debt of almost £80 billion. What is more, one in three owe more than £50,000 and one in ten more than £100,000 putting increased pressure on retirement income.
