How do I access my pension pot online?

You can access your pension money online in your Online Account.

Once you’re logged in, you’ll see a summary table for the ‘funds’ in your pot with The People’s Pension on the welcome page of your Online Account. If you’re eligible to access your pension, you’ll see a blue ‘Take your money’ button within this table.

Click the ‘Take your money’ button and answer all the questions to submit your request to take your money.

You’ll also need to confirm you’ve read and understood the important information we’ve shared with you (such as the ‘Your options at retirement’ booklet) and if you’ve taken guidance and advice.

How do I get to the welcome page?

You automatically land on the welcome page when you log into your Online Account. To get back to the welcome page:

  • if you’re using a desktop computer, click on ‘Home’ or on the B&CE logo in the top left-hand corner
  • if you’re using a mobile device, use the back buttons to navigate back to the welcome page.

I can’t see the ‘Take your money’ button on the welcome page

You can only access your pension once you’re 55 or older. So, if you’re younger than 55, you won’t be able to see the ‘Take your money’ button in your Online Account.

However, if you’re suffering from ill health you may be able to access your pot earlier than your 55th birthday – find out more.
