Track Your Pension Savings

A.F. Blakemore has a pensions website to enable employees to track their pension savings.

The website is a useful tool that can be used by all employees who are currently enrolled on the company’s pension scheme.

The site will enable you to:

  1. Keep track of your pension savings, which are updated daily for changes in unit prices;
  2. Check that A.F. Blakemore's pension scheme administrators have your correct personal details;
  3. Update your personal details, e.g. if you have moved address;
  4. Change your contribution level and/or change the funds you have invested in by downloading a form;
  5. Change who you would like any lump sum death benefits to go to by printing off an “Expression of Wish” form;
  6. See the contributions made by A.F. Blakemore and, if applicable, your own contributions and what units they have purchased;
  7. See what fund or funds you have invested in;
  8. See information on all the funds, i.e. the latest quarterly factsheets;
  9. See how the funds have performed in the past (noting that past performance isn’t a guide to future performance);
  10. See scheme information such as the latest scheme booklet and the annual report and accounts;
  11. Send an email to the scheme administrators, Hughes Price Walker.
