We’ve developed a new mobile app for pension customers
More people than ever are saving into a pension, thanks to initiatives like auto enrolment. But the UK is still facing a long-term savings crisis, with millions of us not putting away enough for the future.
With the State Pension unlikely to give you a good standard of living in retirement, it’s important to save as much as you can, keep track of how much you’ve saved and understand what this means for your finances further down the line.
Keeping it simple
To make things easier, our new mobile app lets you keep an eye on your savings from your phone. Using the app, you’ll be able to quickly see:
- What your pension savings are worth now.
- Your contributions, including what’s put in by your employer and the tax man.
- How your savings are doing and any ProfitShare we may have awarded.
- What your savings could be worth when you retire.
Remember that investment returns are never guaranteed. So while your savings could grow, their value can also go down. This means you could get back less than you put in.
Watch our animation below to find out more about how it works.
When it comes to your pension savings, it’s good to know you’re on track for the retirement you want.
Our mobile app makes it easy for you to keep an eye on your plan whenever you like.
It shows what your pension savings are worth now, and your contributions. Including what the tax man’s put in any employer contributions too.
You’ll see how your savings are performing, any charges you’ve paid and any ProfitShare we’ve awarded.
The app also helps you look ahead to see what your pension savings could be worth when you retire.
Download our free app from the App Store, or Google Play.
If you’d like a more in depth conversation, talk to your financial adviser or find one at unbiased.co.uk.
Before you can access the app, you’ll need to register for online service. Once you’ve done this, you can download the app for free from the App Store for iPhones, or Google Play for Android devices, and login using your online service details.
To use the app you’ll need to be a Royal London Intermediary customer with an individual or workplace pension plan. For a list of all plan types the app’s available for, visit our mobile app page. And, if you’ve got any questions or have any problems accessing the app, take a look at our FAQs or contact us.
We’re working hard to add more useful features to our app – so keep an eye out for future developments coming soon!
