Pensions checklist for 40-somethings

As a forty-someting, what are the main issues I need to think about regarding my pension?

If you have started a pension already, do you know what type of funds your pension is invested in?
Are you on track with your expected retirement income?
Have you met your Pension Adviser in the last year?
Do you take time to read your Pension Benefit Statements or keep track online?
Do you know that you can claim income tax relief on your pension? (Up to 25% until age 50 and higher afterwards.)
As a couple, are you both maximising your income tax relief benefits?
Do you know that you may be able to arrange Pension Life Cover and claim back income tax relief?
