The Fund is pleased to announce a record take-up of the new & improved online facility which allows members to take control of their pension online, 24 hours a day.

The 'Pensions Portal' is exclusive to the West Midlands Pension Fund and has been designed with both our members and employers in mind with the aim of enhancing the user experience and improving member self-service. In turn, this is expected to improve the quality of member data, make pension information easily accessible to members and reduce pressures on our employers.

Your staff members can use the 'Pensions Portal' to:

- Update their own personal details (name/address/marital status)

- View links to troubleshoot their benefit statement and death benefit queries, along with other scheme information such as contribution rates, additional contributions and opting out of the scheme.

- View their Annual Benefit Statement (ABS)

- Calculate retirement estimates

- Check and update their nominated beneficiaries

- Ask the Fund questions & receive a response securely

- Plus much more

The move to the new Pensions Portal will deliver significant efficiencies for the fund and members alike. To make the initiative a success, we need your help.

We appreciate that as an employer, any capacity to promote the 'Pensions Portal' may be limited; therefore, we have developed a communications plan to co-ordinate the wide variety of communications available. To summarise this plan, using the templates/documents attached, we would ask that you:

- Issue an email to your members informing them of the new Pensions Portal

- Consider facilitating a pensions portal sign up event at your office. During these events, members will also be able to ask questions about their individual pension circumstances. For more information or to book, please visit
