FAQ

Question:

On the target builder, where do the ‘Essential, Desirable and Luxuries’ expense figures originate from?

Answer:

The expense figures are calculated from data received from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) on the expenditure of retired two-adult households (excluding those mainly dependent on State Pensions and not economically active). The data is averaged from households situated across the UK and does not factor in the cost of living for specific locations.
