Typically, workers retiring at the moment expect that their pension will be about two thirds of their current salary.

But, a recent study calculated that today's twenty five year olds will have to work until they're 72, to earn enough for a decent pension.

Many people with Personal Pensions have already discovered they might have been better staying with a company scheme. But Occupational pensions also have their problems.

Many employers are changing the rules so you're no longer guaranteed a particular level of pension. You may also find your pension is less than expected if you're a part-timer.

Are you confused by the jargon, or worried that your nest egg may not be as safe as you'd thought? Would you like to find out how to buy extra pension benefits - or what the new Stakeholder Pensions are all about?
