My NEST pension

If you’ve been automatically enrolled by your employer or joined through self-employment or as part of a divorce settlement, you may be wondering what happens next. 


If you haven’t already, you’ll receive a welcome email and a pack in the post. The pack will explain how NEST works and all the things you can do as a member by simply logging into your account.

When you get your welcome pack

In your welcome pack you’ll find a letter including your NEST member ID, and a booklet called Your quick guide to NEST. These will cover the basics on being a NEST member, including how to start using your NEST online account.

To find out everything else you need to know about being a member of NEST, take a look at the detailed ‘Welcome to NEST’ booklet we’ve emailed to your secure NEST mailbox. You can also download the PDF version of this booklet below (just click the link that best describes your situation):

Exploring your NEST pension

Activating your account

The first time you log in you will go through a one-off process to activate your account. It is important that you do so as soon as possible to check your details are correct. You may also wish to nominate a beneficiary. 

Still waiting for your email?

It may be that we have not received one from your employer. To receive the latest information on your pension, log in to your account using your National Insurance number, your alternative identifier (supplied by your employer) or the NEST member ID, and update your details.
