The figures of a report by Watson Wyatt show that a 60-year-old who retired in January 1997 after paying £200 a month into a personal pension for 20 years received a typical annuity of a little over £20,500 a year. Yet a 60-year-old man who retired in January of this year after making identical contributions would receive only £4,613 a year, 78% less.
