Covering the cost of Christmas for life
Hargreaves Lansdown
13 Dec 2018 United Kingdom Annuities and Income Drawdown, Pensioners & Retirement
Hargreaves Lansdown has conducted research looking at the amount an individual would need to save into their pension to buy an annuity at the age of 65 that covered the average cost of Christmas for life. According to the results, a pension pot of £17,200 would be needed to buy an annuity at the age of 65 that would be sufficient to meet the average overall cost of Christmas of £538 per year. The research also found that women would need a bigger pension than men to cover the cost of Christmas, as they are more generous gift-givers.

FTSE 350 Pensions Analysis
Hymans Robertson
5 Dec 2018 United Kingdom Accounting, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Scheme Issues & Trends, Surpluses and Deficits
Hymans Robertson has published its tenth annual FTSE 350 pension analysis report, looking at issues affecting the DB pension schemes of FTSE 350 companies. According to the report, two significant themes for DB pensions in 2019 will be a tougher approach from TPR towards schemes going through actuarial valuations in the wake of several high-profile corporate failures in 2018, and the take-off of the DB consolidation market. The consultancy's research has also found that the majority of companies within the FTSE 350 are comfortably able to support their pension schemes, with 90% of companies able to pay off their IAS19 deficit with less than six months' earnings.
