Changes to my circumstances

If you change any of your personal details, it is important that you let us know as soon as possible. The easiest and most secure way to do this is through our Member Portal portal where you can change:

  • your address, name or marital status,
  • the bank/building society account details where your pension is paid,
  • your 'expression of wish' for payment of a death grant.

You will also be able to view your payslip and P60.

To register or login to the Member Portal, see here: Member Portal.

If you cannot access our Member Portal, then you can still write to us - see below.

To change your name or address

If you cannot access our Member Portal, you can notify us in writing of any changes to your name or address. Please:

  • quote your National Insurance number on all correspondence,

  • post it to Pension Services.

To change your bank details

Alternatively, you can notify us in writing of any changes to your bank account or building society. Please include:
