Your retirement savings

Your retirement savings

At NEST, we believe that saving for your retirement should be straightforward, worth your while and fair. NEST gives everyone a way to get the most from their pension savings without being an expert. All you need to do is keep contributing and we’ll focus on growing your money and keeping it safe.

What happens next

Saving with NEST is easy. You don’t have to do anything if you don’t want to. Your employer will make contributions on your behalf and we’ll make sure your money’s safe and ready for you when you want to take it out. But there are things you can do that will help you make the most of saving with NEST.

I’ve been enrolled

As a member of NEST you’ll have your own online account and be able to make some decisions about what happens to your money. We’ll tell you everything you need to know about being a member of NEST, from how to log into your online account for the first time to information about taking your money out when the time’s right.

Will I be enrolled?

Not everyone gets automatically enrolled. It depends on your age, how much you earn and whether you normally work in the UK. You can also choose to join NEST if your employer’s using us for automatic enrolment or if you’re self-employed. Your employer will write to you before you’re enrolled to let know what’s happening.

My account

As a member of NEST you have an online account. Once you’ve switched it on you can check the value of your retirement pot, see what your employer is contributing or use our pension calculator to find out what you could get back in the end.
