As it’s officially ‘Get Online Week’ we thought it was the perfect time to remind you about the benefits of managing your pension online.
You’ll find a wealth of information on the LPPA website and even more on PensionPoint – your secure online portal. But if you’re looking for more inspiration, here are 5 good reasons why getting online is a good idea.
1. PensionPoint gives you real time access to your pension details
We’ve recently added a new section to PensionPoint called My service details. You can now view your service history, transfer history and CARE history as often as you like. There’s also a useful page that explains it all in more detail.
Did you know?
10.2 million people in the UK lack the basic digital skills needed to use the internet, according to the 2022 Consumer Digital Index.
2. View your documents at any time
It’s easy to view your forms and documents, such as your annual benefit statement or P60 via PensionPoint. Simply log in to your account and click View my documents or select Go to dashboard and click My documents.
Paper or paperless?
Switching to paperless copies of your documents makes it easier and faster to access them. It’s also a safe, secure way to store your personal information and better for the environment!
If you’re currently receiving paper communications and considering switching to paperless (email), simply update your contact preferences in PensionPoint by clicking View personal information.
3. Update your personal details quicker
The quickest way to update your personal details including your name, address, email address and phone number is via PensionPoint.
If you use a work email address for PensionPoint, update it to a personal one. That way, you won’t lose access to your online pension account once you retire!
Depending on your scheme, you can also nominate your beneficiaries in PensionPoint, to help make sure the right people receive a lump sum in the event of your death.
