What the hell is a pension, anyway? It sounds like something my grandfather had. Nobody has ever offered me a pension.

I have what is termed a "non-traditional pension" (what ever that means, it is my accountants terminology). Basically what self-funded, self-employed high earners can do for retirement savings. So I have my own defined contribution pension.
