Ideally, you should aim to set up your NOW: Pensions account 6 months before your staging date so you can become familiar with the site. We do however accept submissions at any point – even after people miss their staging dates.
Setting up an auto enrolment pension with us is so easy it only takes 3 simple steps to complete.
Step 1: Sign up online
We’ve designed a simple online sign up process which is quick and easy to complete. We offer five different plan options to suit your needs. Once your application is complete we will do our best to verify your account in the next 48 hours.
Step 2: Get to know the NOW: Pensions Gateway site
Take some time to get to know your account.
It’s your responsibility to tell your workers about their NOW: Pensions product and auto enrolment, but don’t worry we have created a toolkit to provide you with everything you need to know before speaking with your workers.
Step 3: Preparing for your staging date
Once you are enrolled, there are a few ongoing responsibilities you will need to carry out, including; providing us with up to date payroll information in time with your payroll and sending out statutory communicating.
