If you’re starting to save for retirement for the first time, it can seem like a daunting task. The world of pensions can be confusing and complex, but with PensionBee, starting a pension from scratch has never been easier. In this blog post, we’ll provide a step-by-step guide for creating a pension from scratch with PensionBee.
Step One: Sign up for PensionBee
The first step to creating a pension from scratch with PensionBee is to sign up for an account. This involves providing basic personal information such as your name, date of birth, and National Insurance number. You’ll also need to provide information about any existing pensions you have, including the provider and account details.
Step Two: Choose your Pension Plan
PensionBee offers a variety of pension plans to suit different individual needs. Choose the pension plan that best suits your needs based on factors such as your investment preferences and risk tolerance. PensionBee offers options for ethical investments and other specialist requirements.
Step Three: Set up Regular Contributions
Once you’ve chosen your pension plan, set up regular contributions to your new pension account. You can do this by linking your bank account to your PensionBee account and setting up a direct debit. You’ll have the option to choose the amount you contribute and the payment frequency – whether weekly, monthly, or yearly.
Step Four: Monitor Your Pension’s Growth
It’s important to monitor the growth of your pension over time to ensure it’s on track to meet your retirement goals. PensionBee makes it easy to monitor your pension’s growth through its dashboard. You can check to see how your pension is performing, view projected income, and make changes to your plan if necessary.
Step Five: Consolidate Other Pensions
If you have other older pensions that are difficult to keep track of, consolidating them into your new PensionBee account can help manage them all in one place. PensionBee makes this easy by searching for and transferring any other pensions into your account.
Starting a pension from scratch may seem intimidating, but PensionBee makes it simple and straightforward. By signing up for an account, choosing your plan, setting up contributions, monitoring your pension’s growth, and consolidating other pensions, you can be on your way to a secure retirement.
