Our service makes it easy for employees to shop around and secure a competitive retirement income. It also enables employers to deliver The Pensions Regulator's relevant 'good outcome', by facilitating an appropriate decumulation decision.

Benefits of getting an annuity quote

  • Annuity rates are live and fully underwritten.
  • Multiple annuity quotes and options can be calculated at once.
  • Automatic search for enhanced annuities - simply by adding health and lifestyle details.
  • Retrieve previous quotes.
  • A dedicated Bristol-based Helpdesk to answer any questions.
  • Free to use with no obligation to go ahead.
  • If employees do want to proceed, we'll set up the annuity for them.
  • How much income could an enhanced annuity add?

    It’s estimated 70% of the UK population could qualify for an enhanced annuity at retirement. Retirees don’t have to be seriously ill to qualify – if they smoke, are overweight, drink regularly or take any prescribed medication they could increase their annuity income.

    If members prefer, we can provide figures over the phone and by post.
