Before you buy.

You must read the Stakeholder pension plan key features (PDF: 879KB) and  Choosing your investment fund (PDF: 194KB) documents before you apply for your Stakeholder pension.
You can print them and keep for future reference. If there are any aspects of these documents you don't understand, please speak to a financial adviser, or contact us.

We also recommend that you read the Money Advice Service's website for further information on Stakeholder pensions.  

This online application should take 10-15 minutes to complete.

To apply online you'll need:

  • details of your employment if you're working, including your employer's address and the date your employment started;
  • your National Insurance number, which you may find on your payslip, P60 or National Insurance number card; and
  • the details of the bank/building society account from which you wish to pay your contributions.

We will send you a copy of your completed application form. Please check this carefully. If you need to make any adjustments you can contact us on 0345 993 2584.

Please note, this application is only for investing new contributions into a plan. If you want to transfer money from a pension plan with another provider, please telephone 0345 993 2584. Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. Call charges will vary. We may record and monitor calls.

Your right to change your mind

After we've accepted your application, we'll send you a notice of your right to cancel. We then give you 30 days, from the date you receive the notice, to change your mind about starting the plan. If there has been a fall in the investment value of your plan during the period before we receive your instructions, the refund may reflect this.

If you don't take this opportunity to cancel, but decide you want to do so at a later stage, you can't get any money back until you take your benefits, which can be any time from age 55.

On this website, we're not seeking to give you advice. It's up to you to decide if this Stakeholder pension is suitable for you. If you're unsure, please contact us for further information. Please note we can only give information about Legal & General products and services.
