    A company offers to pay 7% into a pension fund.
    An employee asks if it is sensible to turn down this 7%.

    It is a no brainer!

    Anyone starting work now will live in poverty if they don't start saving for their pensionable age NOW.

    Its not quite as simple as that when you start contracting out NICs and are paying 3.5% yourself.
