First time log in checklist

The first time you log in there are a couple of really important things you should do:

Make sure we have the right contact details for you. This includes the right postal address and an email address that’s convenient for you. It’s a good idea to add a personal email address rather than a work one so we can still keep in touch with you if you change employer.

Tell us who you’d like to give your retirement pot to if you die before taking your money out of NEST. It could be your partner, a member of your family, your favourite charity, a trust or a combination of people or organisations.

What  you can do when you log in

When you log into your account you can keep track of your retirement pot, make changes to the way you've saving, and more.


Manage your contributions

Putting extra money in your retirement pot can make a big difference to what you get at the end. NEST lets you increase your regular contributions or make one-off payments when you want to put a little extra aside.

Change the way your money is managed

Your money will be automatically put into a NEST Retirement Date Fund designed to have your money ready for you when you’re due to take it out. We also offer a choice of funds for people with personal beliefs or preferences about how we manage their money.
