Help Centre for Employees

What happens to an employee’s pension if they leave the company?

The employees’ pension contributions will stay invested with NOW: Pensions after the employee leaves the company, and the employee will continue to receive pension communication from NOW: Pensions.

An employee can also choose to transfer their pension pot to another Registered Pensions Scheme or a Qualifying Registered Overseas Pension Scheme.

By consolidating the pensions in one place the employee may increase their purchasing power to maximise their retirement benefit.
