How to set up a pension

Ok, so you're ready to set up your pension. But how do you actually get started? In this article, we'll walk you through everything you need to set up a pension plan.

How to set up a private pension

To set up your private pension, you'll need a few bits of information handy. Before you start, make sure you have:

  • your UK address
  • a document to verify your identity (your passport or your driver's licence are perfect)
  • your national insurance number

You'll also likely need to have your bank details ready - so you can set up payments into your pension.

Opening a pension with a transfer

You can also set up a new pension by transferring in a pot from a different provider.

To do this, you'll need the policy number and details of your old pension. You can find out how to track down all this and more with our guide to finding and transferring old pensions.
