The Pensions Trust is developing member online access for members of its defined benefit pension schemes, including SHPS. At its meeting in December 2015 the SHPS Committee was shown a demonstration of the new facility. An online account allows members to:
• keep personal information and beneficiary details up-to-date,
• view pension information, including benefit statements,
• request quotations and;
• send an enquiry direct to The Pensions Trust.
‘DB online’ will be rolled out to SHPS DB members at the start of 2016. Members who prefer to communicate by phone or letter will still be able to do this – electronic communication will not be compulsory but it does provide another means for members to interact with The Trust.
