<<But I've also heard many people who do have pensions complain that they are small, and I've always figured it was more than the $0 I will get from the pension I don't have.>>
I don't think I know anyone my age (42) who has a pension. To my ear they're like bakelite or rotary phones -- not something that exists in modern society.
While I'm sure that's a very skewed and inaccurate perspective in reality, it is my experience.
Nationwide, about 42% of private-sector workers have some kind of defined-benefit pension coverage. Of course, virtually all Gov't workers have pension coverage.
