Gross pension wealth

Pension wealth measures the total value of the lifetime flow of retirement incomes. For male average earners, pension wealth in the region is, on average, 12.0 times annual earnings. The figure is higher for women – 13.7 times individual earnings – because of their longer life expectancy.
