Information about us and this website


Last updated: 03/01/2015


Annuity Choices Limited is run by two former independent financial advisers who between them have over 40 years of experience of providing financial advice to private clients.

The purpose of the site is to provide free information to educate visitors in the features, benefits and downsides of the retirement income options available to people who have money invested in personal pension plans and similar pension arrangements.

Rather than provide guide booklets, the information is provided in the form of articles which are targeted at the specific topics covered by this website.

The articles provided are split into categories, which can be accessed from the menus in the side columns on each page of the site.

Once you have entered your category of choice you will find lists of articles for your perusal.

In addition, the articles can be viewed according to their individual tags or you can use the Search Box at the top of the screen to search for articles containing the specific word that you are interested in.

To help you make decisions about the future of your pension funds, you could speak to a pensions adviser who will help you decide on the best options for you.

In our experience, most people benefit from taking advice.

We hope that you find pensionchoices.com useful and thank you for visiting our website.
