Making the most of what’s available online

Whilst we know that managing your finances online is not for everyone, we now have some great tools available via the Scheme website.

If you’re looking for details about the Funds available to invest in, or simply want to understand how you change your contribution level or transfer funds into your Personal Account from another pension arrangement... it’s likely you’ll find the answers to most of your questions here.

There are some great interactive tools on the website too.

To help find some of the key information quickly you’ll find six quick links at the bottom of each page. Here’s a rundown of each of these:

Scheme information — if you’re looking for general information about the Scheme this is a great place to start. If you’re new to the Scheme the video ‘What is a Defined Contribution Pension Scheme?’ is worth watching. It’s only a couple of minutes long!

My account — this takes you into your own Personal Account, you can read more about this below.

Fund factsheets — if you’re keen on taking a more active role in how your Personal Account is invested, this area of the website is invaluable. As well as the quarterly Fund factsheets you’ll also find a ‘Market commentary’ from our
DC Section investment consultant, which is updated every month.

Interactive tools — this is where you’ll find the tools to help you understand investment risk, compare your retirement options and see how much the Company, and the taxman, will pay into your Personal Account if you choose to pay a little
more yourself.

Pension bites — this is where you’ll find all the videos we’ve created. Each is only a couple of minutes long, but they cover a wide range of topics from your investment choices through to what to consider as you approach retirement.

Any comments — tell us what you think of the website. We really value all the feedback we get as it helps us make the website even better.
