The first step is to sign up with a few details about yourself and answer some quick and easy pension questions, like when you plan to retire, or if ESG investing (socially responsible investing) is important to you.
You’ll then receive your tailored pension plan, using funds selected from the whole of the market, and we’ll introduce you to your dedicated Pension Adviser.
Combine or transfer old pensions into your new online plan
Then in your online account tell us about any pensions you would like to combine into your new plan, including any old workplace pensions you’d like us to track down for you. We’ll then take care of the rest by contacting your providers and arranging the transfer on your behalf.
Start a new pension
You also have the option of starting a completely new pension, and adding money by setting up regular or one off contributions. With help from your dedicated Pension Adviser if you need it.
Ongoing advice service
Once we have setup your pension for you, our ongoing advice service continues to monitor and review your pension, to keep your money working as hard as you do. Together with your dedicated Pension Adviser, we’ll make sure your pension plan is updated regularly to reflect your changing needs and what you want to get out of retirement. Just like your original personalised pension plan, our ongoing advice service is impartial and looks at the funds available from the whole of the market.
Secure online account
You’ll always have access to your secure online account to see your pension plan, the balance and the performance of your pension. You can also easily:
Talk to your dedicated Pension Adviser who is there to help you, whenever you need them
Make one-off or set up regular payments
Plan for your retirement, including pension drawdown income
Add other pensions or find lost pensions - and we’ll check for any guarantees or protected benefits*
Keep us up to date with your details

Access in retirement
From age 55 onwards (rising to 57 in 2028) you can access your pension via your online account and begin pension drawdown. Your tailored pension plan gives you the flexibility to access your pension and could help you withdraw from your pension with confidence.
A real-time withdrawal schedule - an estimated sustainable annual or monthly drawdown rate in your online account
Continued investment - making sure your pension benefits from the potential of further growth
Your dedicated Pension Adviser - someone is always on hand to help you with your pension
