About NEST Corporation

NEST Corporation is the Trustee that runs the NEST scheme. It took over from the Personal Accounts Delivery Authority (PADA), the agency set up by the government to deliver ‘personal accounts’ – a key element of the auto enrolment policy. ‘Personal accounts’ became NEST.

As a non-departmental public body NEST Corporation is accountable to Parliament through the Department for Work and Pensions but is generally independent of government in its day-to-day decisions.

Who runs NEST?

NEST Corporation is the Trustee of the NEST scheme. It is made up of a Chair and up to 14 Trustee Members, appointed by the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions in line with public appointments guidance.
