Why do I have a pension with TPT?

By law, employers need to offer a workplace pension and enrol employees who meet certain criteria and your employer has chosen TPT as their workplace pension provider. Find out more about auto enrolment using the link below.

  • How does TPT manage my money?

    When you invest, you are putting your money into something with the goal of growing it over time. That ‘something’ could be a company, property, bonds or cash deposits. You can use your pension savings to invest your money in one or more of these things through investment funds. Any profits you make from investing are known as ‘returns’ and will grow your pension over time. However, it is important to remember that positive returns are not guaranteed and that the value of investments can go up as well as down.

    When you join TPT your savings will be invested in one of our target date funds (TDFs), unless you choose to switch to a different investment choice. TDFs invest your money differently as you get older. This gives your money a better chance to grow in the early years and hold its value as you get closer to taking your pension.

    Many of our members choose to stay in the TDF, where everything is taken care of for them. However, If you want to take a more hands-on approach to how your money is invested, you can choose from our range of self-select funds.

What if I have other pensions?

If you already have a workplace pension, don’t worry. You can have several workplace pensions and while you have the option to combine your workplace pensions, there’s absolutely no requirement to do this.
