This was too good to pass up…Skandia, a UK investment and insurance company, released the results of a study of 3,000 Brits that revealed that 51 per cent are worried about how they are going to fund their retirement years. More than a third are waiting for some inheritance money, and one in ten are hoping for a big lottery win and six per cent even plan to marry someone rich instead of actually having to save for the days when they no longer work. The study also goes on to show that respondents are interested in downsizing to smaller properties.
"Things can always change and the inheritance may go down in value or even disappear altogether, and the lottery and competition prizes are a pipe-dream for most of us, so it’s always good to have a real plan in place,” said spokeswoman Michelle Cracknell from Skandia.
