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.
