We understand how important it is to ensure scheme members understand and engage with their pension. Effective and engaging communications with scheme members continue to be our focus.

Members will be fully supported by our comprehensive range of member communication and engagement solutions which have been designed to help them make informed decisions regarding their pension pot and choices at retirement.

We use a variety of communication channels, optimising messages for different mediums, both at launch and throughout the lifetime of the scheme.

Online tools for members

We have a range of online tools to help members get on board and to see if they're on track for the retirement they hope for. All our online platforms and tools are optimised for use on all devices.

Manage Your Account

Manage Your Account is an online service that gives members access to their workplace pension information, allows them to change funds and update their details.

Features include:

  • Easy navigation  – employees can view and move easily between pension investments
  • The ability to explore investment options with ease
  • Our watched funds feature which allows employees to select funds that are of interest and save them to their profile
  • A simple shopping basket facility for changing funds
  • The ability to view, download and order statements
  • Access to the Retirement Planner and Attitude to Risk Tools, guides and video tutorials to help plan for retirement

Scheme microsite

Once members enrol into your client's scheme, they get access to a scheme microsite and associated content for the four key stages of scheme membership:

  • First step: joining the pension scheme
  • On your way: considering contribution levels and investment choices
  • Getting there: things to think about when members are 10 years or less from retirement
  • Arriving: the options for taking money from a pension pot

Depending on your client's specification, members can access retirement planning tools and other material to drive engagement and education.

Attitude to risk tool

Our attitude to risk tool helps an employee get an idea of the level of risk they’re prepared to take for the returns they hope to achieve. It helps employees to:

  • Assess how they view risk
  • Understand our attitude to risk profiles
  • Consider these when planning their pension investments

Retirement planner

Our retirement planning tool, one of our most important modelling tools, helps employees experiment with the income they could achieve in retirement depending on a range of factors including:

  • How much they save and for how many years
  • How their investments perform
  • How they choose to take their benefits when the time comes

The tool can help members compare their options at retirement as we show the cash lump sums and income that can be generated if the member chooses an annuity, income drawdown or a cash lump sum.

WorkSave Choice

WorkSave Choice is an online enrolment management service. Members can:

  • View and amend their details
  • Find out more about pensions and investments
  • Opt out if they wish to leave the scheme
  • Interact directly with us - saving employers' time

Boost your savings tool

A tool to help show members where their money goes and where they could look to make small changes to free up a bit of extra cash to boost their savings.

How much will you need? tool

We've created a tool to help members understand what they might need to pay for in retirement. It gives them the chance to have a think about what their expenses in retirement might be, and how much they could add up to.
