That is why the Scottish Government is publishing a series of papers in the run-up to the independence White Paper, setting out the fine detail on the big issues that people care about.
Yesterday, we published a paper on one of the most important issues of all - pensions in an independent Scotland.
The paper sets out in detail what the arrangements for all forms of pensions - state, private and public - will be after a Yes vote.
It confirms that all pensions paid to people in Scotland are already administered here - in the Pensions Centres in Dundee and Motherwell - meaning the infrastructure for paying pensions already exists.
It also confirms pensions are more than affordable in an independent Scotland. Indeed, given that payments for social protection, which includes pensions, take up a smaller proportion of our national wealth than is the case in the UK, they are more affordable with independence.
The paper guarantees all pensions people are currently entitled to will continue to be paid in full and on time.
Under our plans, the basic state pension, currently £110.15, is expected to be at least £118.60 by the time Scotland becomes independent.
And the Scottish single tier pension will be introduced for new pensioners from 2016.
Also, we have given a guarantee that, for at least the whole term of the first parliament of an independent Scotland, in other words until 2021, the value of the state pension will be protected by the triple lock, ensuring it keeps pace with earnings and rising costs.
The UK Government has given no commitment to the triple lock behind 2015.
The Scottish Government has also confirmed it will set up an expert commission to consider the future of the state pension age in Scotland if we become independent.
Under Westminster plans, the retirement age will increase to 66 by 2020 and to 67 from 2026.
The increase to 67 is now planned to take place eight years earlier than originally intended.
We think that is a cause for concern and also potentially unfair to Scotland.
Life expectancy in Scotland - although improving - is still 2.5 years lower for men and 1.8 years lower for women than the UK average.
That means that, already, although Scots make the same contributions, we receive less back in pension.
Independence will mean we can look at this again and make decisions that are right for Scottish circumstances - instead of simply having to accept whatever any Government at Westminster decides.
So, all in all, this important paper on pensions confirms not just that your pension will be secure after independence but that, in some key respects, you will have stronger safeguards than is the case just now.
