Editorial policy

At Retirement Line, we are committed to ensuring that content on our website is original, accurate, trustworthy and accessible. This editorial policy explains the approach we take when creating content to meet these standards. 

Content objectives

News content covers updates from across the retirement finance sector. We aim to help our readers keep informed about important matters relating to their retirement income. We also publish the latest news about Retirement Line and our dedicated team.

Blog content provides useful insights into retirement matters with a focus on tips and answers to questions, whether you have reached retirement age or are planning your transition away from work. 

Other content on our website aims to provide information about annuities and other issues of relevance before or at retirement.


We aim to write our content in clear English, to a high professional standard. We naturally use industry jargon at times, but we seek to explain jargon in order to ensure readability and accessibility. You may find our jargon buster useful as an additional source of clarification. 

We strive to avoid bias on the basis of age, ability, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, socio-economic background etc. Please contact us to flag potential issues around bias or discrimination and we will do our best to rectify the situation.


We have a strict policy against plagiarism, and all our content is original (unless otherwise stated). Where we quote directly from external content, we will always make it clear that this is the case.

Fact checking and compliance

Content is typically created by members of the Retirement Line team or professional writers with extensive financial sector experience. Each piece is thoroughly researched, and then fact-checked by at least one person other than the author in order to ensure accuracy. 

We adhere to strict standards for sourcing. We rely on trusted sources such as government and academic organisations, professional bodies and established news outlets. A log of all external sources used and checked as part of this process is kept internally, and we often cite the sources within the content itself.

Content is also checked by our Compliance Department as appropriate, referencing for example the Financial Conduct Authority’s overarching guidance that content should be ‘fair, clear and not misleading’.

When published, our news and blog content is dated. That’s because readers may find it helpful to know when content was published as circumstances can change, and previously accurate content may become inaccurate. Although we often review and update our content (and post the date of the most recent update), we cannot do this for all content on a regular basis. For example, news articles often cover a distinct moment in time, so it would not be appropriate to routinely update them.


Retirement Line’s website content is for information purposes only and does not constitute financial advice. Please always seek further information, guidance or advice in respect of your own circumstances. 

We disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by any visitor to our site, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents. Please see our website’s terms and conditions for further information. 

Republishing policy

If you republish all or part of a piece of our content, you may do so on the understanding that you fully credit us and link to the original content on the Retirement Line website. A suggested format for this credit is: ‘Originally published by Retirement Line on [DATE] at [URL].
