Number of pensioner millionaires grows

Over 1 million UK pensioner households have total wealth of more than £1 million.

Based on official figures for 2010-2012, the number of over-65 millionaires increased 69% compared to 2006-2008 when the number stood at around 636,000: meaning that 11% of pensioner households now have total wealth of more than £1 million.

The rising number of pensioner millionaires is being driven by pension assets, savings and investments, and property. The figures show:
• the value of private pension assets increased from £60,000 in 2006-2008, to £82,000 in 2010-2012
• the number of retirees with a private pension increased from 73% in 2006-2008 to 76% in 2010-2012
• 19% of pensioner households now have savings and investments worth more than £100,000, a 15% rise from 2006-2008
• the average property value for retired couples is £210,000, compared to £200,000 in 2006-2008

Research also finds that 12% of over-65 households have assets worth less than £40,000 and 1 in 8 have net savings and investments worth less than £500.
