Transcript  for video Welcome to your new Aviva Workplace Pension

Welcome to your new Aviva Workplace Pension.

This video is all about your new pension plan and your journey to Retirement.

We’re an award-winning provider with more than three million members and 300 years’ experience, so you can trust that we know pensions inside out.

A big reason for this recognition is the quality of the support we offer for our members.

So, from the moment you start your retirement journey with us, here’s some of the things you can expect…

When you start your journey you’ll need some support. You’ll soon receive your member booklets where you can find out more about your Aviva workplace pension scheme.

Keep an eye out for your welcome pack, explaining how you can check your pension and access the support you need.

It can be hard to see if you’re on the right road towards the retirement you want, so we’ll give you access to useful videos, online tools and easy-to-read information –, so, no matter how far you are from your retirement, we can help you prepare.

Don’t worry about losing your way, we’ll be in touch with reminders and support throughout your journey.

So, you’ll get lots of help.

But you’re still in the driving seat, because we’ve made it easy for you to take control of your pension yourself.

Once your new pension is up and running, you’ll be able to register for our safe, secure, online account.

Here you can view your pension’s value quickly and easily.

You’ll also be able to…

Make changes to your personal details.

Set your preferences so you get your pension information in a way that’s right for you…

Check the amount you’re paying in, how your money is being invested and make one off payments…

Start the process to transfer other pensions to your Aviva pension, if that’s the right decision for you…

And, access our pension planning tools to help and support you along the way…

It pays to keep an eye on the performance of your pension, because the value of your investments can go down as well as up. And, you could get back less than has been paid in….

It’s great to be starting out on our journey together. We’ll be in touch again soon a little further down the road.

A key part of our service is managing the scheme engagement on your behalf, with central sends or scheme-specific communications.
