Switch to an existing Pension Portfolio plan

We can accept:

  • scanned copies of signed application forms
  • applications signed by the client using an electronic signature (e.g. DocuSign)
  • an unsigned copy of an application form where it hasn't been possible to get a wet signature from the client. This must be submitted along with an email from the client, confirming that they're happy to go ahead with the application.

To make it easier for you, we've created some standard wording (.doc) that must be included in the confirmation email from your clients.

Hit the ProfitShare deadline

While we can’t guarantee that we can award ProfitShare every year, if your clients make a single contribution or a transfer into their existing Royal London plan before 6pm on Thursday 30 March 2023, we'll include this in the calculations for any ProfitShare that may be awarded in 2023.

To qualify for an award in 2023, the plan must have been in force on or before 30 December 2022.
