New improved microsite for your company pension scheme

We are delighted to announce new improved pension scheme microsites designed to encourage your employees to engage more with their retirement planning.

Most schemes will have the new site from 24 April and the table below shows the implementation strategy in full.

The new site structure is based on 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 you're 10 years or less from retirement
  • Arriving: the options for taking money from a pension pot

The site incorporates short explanatory videos for each of the four stages and simplified online tools to help members plan for the level of income they're hoping for in retirement.

The comprehensive structure and content deliver better support to the member through their journey to retirement and clearly highlight things to consider, and decisions they might want to make, along the way.

Implementation strategy

The timetable below indicates when we plan to replace your scheme microsite with the new version:

Scheme type Is YOUR site for an auto enrolment scheme? Estimated implementation date
Worksave Pension Plan (where the fund names ends in '3', for example the 'Legal & General Cash Fund 3') Yes 24 April 2017
Group Stakeholder Pension Plan Yes 19 June 2017
Worksave Pension Plan (where the fund names don't end in 3, for example the 'Legal & General Cash Fund') Yes 19 June 2017
Group Personal Pension Plan Yes 3 July 2017
Worksave Pension Plan (where the fund names don't end in 3, for example the 'Legal & General Cash Fund') No 19 June 2017
Worksave Pension Plan (where the fund names ends in '3', for example the 'Legal & General Cash Fund 3') No 10 July 2017
Group Stakeholder Pension Plan No 17 July 2017
Group Personal Pension Plan No 24 July 2017

You don't need to do anything. Your new microsite will have the same address and use the same link as the current version.

If your scheme microsite has its own unique content or branding, we will be contacting you or your adviser to discuss your requirements for adopting the new style in due course.

Helping you promote the new microsite to your employees

To help you promote your new microsite to your employees, we've updated the  Microsite Poster Template (PPT: 854KB) which can be downloaded or printed and distributed to your employees as part of your internal communications programme.

Please note: You can manually edit the poster to show your logo, scheme name and your specific microsite address.
