Workplace Retirement Service

A better way to help your employees retire

The choices your employees make at retirement could affect them for the rest of their lives. That's why our Workplace Retirement Service makes sure they have everything they need to make the right decisions and retire with confidence.

We shop around on their behalf, finding the best annuity rates in a matter of minutes. For those who want more flexibility, we offer a low cost drawdown service. Members can mix and match or even take their entire fund as cash, if they want.

Our service makes retirement as flexible, easy and stress-free as possible – just as it should be.
