It’s been another busy month in the PensionBee office as we continue working on updates and improvements, in line with our mission to create an innovative pension product for our customers. Here are some of our highlights from March.
We’re rolling out My Plan updates for our mobile app
We’re always looking to provide our customers with greater insight into their savings, from our easy pensions explainers to helping customers understand their pension performance. We’ve recently made some shiny improvements to your plan page, which you can find under the ‘Account’ tab when you log into your online dashboard. You’ll find information about your plan and its performance, as well as additional resources to help you get into the nitty gritty of your pension plan.
We’re now rolling out these updates to our mobile app, to make it even easier to learn about your plan and how it’s performing. Currently, Android users will find a new ‘Plan information’ link on their ‘Account’ tab, under the ‘My Plan’ heading. Here, you’ll be able to find details about your plan, performance charts, and other useful information. We’ll be rolling out the new update to iOS users in the next couple of weeks, alongside additional resource documents for both platforms.
Guest blogger Faith Archer wrote about the gender pension gap
For International Women’s Day this year, finance journalist and money blogger Faith Archer wrote an insightful guest post for PensionBee, highlighting the gender pension gap and steps we can all take to close it. Faith builds on our research which shows that, on average, men in the UK have 31% more in their pots than women, with the gap increasing to 42% for men and women in their 50s. Yikes!
Faith addresses the cause of this gap, including its links to the gender pay gap, and offers some helpful suggestions for women to close the gap and make the most of their pension savings. You can read Faith’s full post on our blog.
