Reality check

The world of retirement and pensions is so full of complex language that sometimes it is difficult to make sense of it all – which, of course, is why this website and the book exist in the first place.  As a result, it is very easy to make some mistakes in thinking about your pension – but these pages will act as a bit of a ‘reality check’ and help put your thinking on to a more solid track.

Have a look at the list of headings under “Myths and Delusions” to the right of this text and pick one or two of the things that you thought were true and check them out – you may be surprised at what you find.

We also have a series of articles on a similar theme – look at “Reality Check Updates” to find out more.
