People aiming to retire this year are prioritising saving money to ensure they have enough to live on in retirement.
According to new research from Prudential, almost 6 out of 10 people (57 percent) said saving is their priority.
Women are more likely than men to prioritise saving during retirement following the insurer’s Class of 2012 Study that reviews the finances and expectations of individuals looking to retire this year.
The study found 62 percent of women will make saving a priority compared with 52 percent of men.
Individuals intending to retire this year are determined to save money in order to allow a fun-filled retirement.
Over a third (36 percent) said spending money on travelling the world is a priority, while 43 percent will prioritise spending money on enjoying themselves during retirement.
Retirement expert at Prudential, Vince Smith-Hughes, said: "Today's retirees are likely to spend longer in retirement than previous generations so it is encouraging to see that they understand the importance of saving money to ensure they can live comfortably.
He continued: “Saving shouldn't be regarded as something that suddenly stops once you retire, and the current generation of retirees seems to be more aware of this than ever before.
"Saving as much money as possible, from as early an age as possible, is the best way to ensure you can afford a comfortable lifestyle in retirement. Consulting a financial adviser can also be an important step in helping retirees to make the most of their pension pots.
"It's not only about saving though - many retirees in the Class of 2012 are determined to spend money on enjoying themselves and travelling the world, which seems a fair reward for all their hard work during their working lives."
Low priorities for retirees this year are spending money on fighting the ageing process and giving to charity.
Less than 1 in 20 (4 percent) pensioners said they would make spending money on anti-ageing treatments a priority in retirement. 5 percent said they would ensure donations to charity were made during their retirement.
Retirees wanting to save should review the different bank accounts to ensure they generate the best interest from their savings.
