    Modernity is improving longevity in almost all parts of the world.
    The ever-increasing life expectancy is pushing the age at which you can claim a state pension higher all over Europe.
    We take an in-depth look into how the UK state pensions fare compared to other European countries in terms of the retirement age and how much you can expect to receive versus the cost of living.

    We compare whether countries provide sufficient pensions to live comfortably during the ongoing cost of living crisis.

    Really interesting to see how the UK compares. Spain coming out top was a surprise, but makes sense with their lower cost of living.

    Yes, pensions are always complicated as a lot of factors need to apply, including the cost of living, the public or private pensions, the healthcare...etc.
