I retired 18 mnth ago, I have not claimed my private pension, my state pension does not kick in for another 7 yrs. Up until my retirement, my total savings per annum in my pension ,investments ect was about £30K.
Income minus outgo is the simple formula.....
I know people of many income and education levels who can't seem to make the outgo less than the income.

Truth rings hollow in empty heads.
That's just dumb.
Let's assume these answers are honest and that all of them read and understood that these were individual incomes and not family incomes.
Many are asking why I didn't use larger numbers. It looks like most of the people on this forum are in good financial shape, unless they are in high rent places like NYC or L.A.
But, look at the other end of the spectrum. The next largest number, 9, checked the lowest figure--Under $5K. I expected something like this because unemployment is at record levels right now--and rising--and will continue to rise until next year when enough Republicans and fiscal conservatives get seats in Congress and legislatures to halt the reckless spending, taxing, and regulating.
Only a handful voted for anything in the middle--no more than 2 votes in any one category.
As a result of this poll, we now see that the great majority of people fall at the extremes of very poor (under $5K) and the well to do at $50K and above. The big number poll did not provide this information.
And the under $5K category looks like it is rapidly growing. Welcome to the Greater Depression.
There is another poll that has the large numbers you like.
