• Self-employed and need a pension? Simply, tap “Self-employed and don’t have a pension to transfer?” when signing up and adding a pension. You’ll then be able to open, and add some money to your PensionBee account
• Choose from seven purpose-built plans including our Impact plan, for those interested in socially responsible investments. All are managed by some of the world’s largest and most experienced money managers. Switch plans at any time.

• Skip the tedious paperwork by making withdrawals straight to your bank account digitally from the age of 55 (57 from 2028).

• Check your pension balance and track its performance 24/7
• Keep track of any outstanding pension transfers.

Friendly, award-winning customer service
• Get human support with your very own UK-based account manager
• Our BeeKeepers are on hand to look after you and your pension, from sign up to drawdown.

Transparent - no hidden fees
• Our plans have one simple annual fee ranging from 0.50% to 0.95%. We halve that fee on the portion of your pension over £100,000
• A withdrawal fee of £150 applies in certain circumstances; when accessing your pension within the first 12 months of being with us or if the value of your account’s less than £150 at the point of withdrawal
• There’s also a 30-day cancellation policy, which means we’ll return your pensions to your old providers free of charge - assuming they’re also willing to take them back.

FSCS protected - up to 100% of value
• FSCS protection for your savings in the unlikely event that we, or one of our money managers, fails. Due to the structure of our investments your pension savings are protected through a contract of long-term insurance up to 100% of their value once fully invested with us, unlike some providers where your pension’s only protected up to £85,000.

It’s quick and easy to get started - sign up in the app
• Sign up in minutes for free
• Tell us about your pensions by sharing your provider name or policy number, then confirm you’d like to transfer
• Leave the rest to us! We’ll reach out to your provider to transfer your pension and keep you updated every step of the way.

PensionBee’s authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

As with any investment, the value of your PensionBee pension can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you started with.

PensionBee is fine as a pension provider but their app is next to useless. Slow, unstable and not at all intuitive. Can't even logon sometimes waiting for the little circle to stop going round and round. It is easier to log on to your account from Chrome (or similar) rather than trying to use this app.

Firstly PensionBee is awesome. Combined my pensions all really simply couldn't have wished for a better outcome The app however, not as impressive. It used to work but now instead of a login button I get a forever spinning icon. I have tried uninstalling, clearing the data and reinstalling with no luck. Don't take this as a criticism of PensionBee, just the app doesn't work well. Hence the 3 stars.

This app is pretty ropey, but not as ropey as the fact that no one contacts you when you ask for help with an issue and it just keeps on hanging while verifying my identity.. pretty bloody poor and anyone thinking of using pensionbee... think again and use a proper pension company with advisors who actually get back to you when you need help. Rubbish.
