Pay your pension some attention

We’re supporting the Pay Your Pension Some Attention campaign

So what's happening?

This autumn people are being encouraged to look at their pension, as we team up with the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) and the Association of British Insurers (ABI) to support the Pension Attention campaign.

There’ll be a series of activities throughout the autumn which will help you get to grips with your pension. This will include Pension Awareness Week from 31 October, when you’ll have access to a range of free webinars run by Pension Geeks – they’ll be covering topics such as How much pension do I need?, How can I take my pension, and Pensions and tax explained.

Pension Awareness Week was scheduled to run from 12 September but it has been postponed out of respect for Her Majesty The Queen and the period of mourning that follows her sad passing.

More things to help

  • Modellers and tools

    You’ll also find a range of modellers and tools that give you a clearer picture of what you might receive when you retire and more.

  • Guidance and advice

    If you’d like more hands-on support, visit our guidance and financial advice page for a series of webinars as well as information on other sources of professional guidance and advice.

We’ll also be updating our social media throughout autumn so keep an eye out! You can support the campaign by sharing your pension stories and experiences on social media with the hashtag #pensionattention.
