Sixty six per cent of Irish people believe that it is wise start a pension in their 20s according to a survey of 1000 people throughout Ireland. The survey was commissioned by regulated renewable energy fund provider, Greenroom Investments and conducted by IReach.

The results indicate that many people in their 30s saddled with substantial mortgage and childcare payments regret not starting a pension in their 20s when they had considerably more disposable income.

Greenroom Investments claim that with up to half of workers in their 20s being offered employer-sponsored pension schemes in public sector or large companies, it appears that the vast majority of the remaining young workers left to their own devices chose not to start a pension.
