You can request to take 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 ‘Claim’ button within this table.
Click the ‘Claim’ button and answer all the questions to submit your request to take your money.
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 ‘Claim’ 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 ‘Claim’ 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.
