UKs pension funding hole hits 900bn after Brexit Source.
Sorry, I can't access your link, but I'm presuming this relates to self-funding 'final salary' schemes? If so, this has been an issue for several decades and is unrelated to the referendum.

A big majority of occupational schemes these days, as well as nearly all personal pensions and SIPPs are dependent on the performance of the financial markets and related instruments. The weakness of the pound has given a major boost to the value of most diversified pension investments -- that was my point in response to the poster moaning about holiday spending money.
