Who are we?
PensionSorter is part of the MoneySorter
network of websites bringing you unbiased, independent and
totally user friendly information on all
aspects of UK personal finance.
It was written and developed by non-finance professionals
and is aimed at normal people who are trying to make sense
of all the jargon.

This was our first site. It's won widespread acclaim for
making a highly complex subject as simple as possible and
gets great feedback from it's users.

We've since added MortgageSorter,

Why we did this website
This website arose from a conversation between
a group of friends when we all confessed complete confusion
Once our guilty secret was out we quickly
agreed that it wasn't us - it was "them"! After all we may
not be rocket scientists but we're reasonably intelligent
So why are UK pensions so difficult to understand?
The more we looked into it and read about
the mis-sold pensions and other outrageous scandals the
more we saw a need for simple, jargon-free information.
So we decided to do this website.
This website is definitely a labour
of love. It was a challenge undertaken in the spirit
of public mindedness.
The pensions / retirement catastrophe looming
for the younger generation is truly worrying
and the thought of all those retired ravers sitting in cold
damp basements in the future, scares and angers us.
Look at the way the elderly are treated now.
We doubt the politicians are going to get any better.
Things have developed since we started in
that we now get some income; for example as part of our
research we've came across various experts and brokers who
seem to be worthwhile consulting and can put you in touch
with them for a free quote. (But please note: You should
always get at least three quotes from different
suppliers before buying a financial product).
We may get some income if any such "referrals",
result in "sales" as well as from the sale of books via
Amazon and so on.
However this is on the strict understanding
that, if we do, it won't cost you anything extra. In any
case, frankly, what we do get is hardly worth writing home
