Helping you at retirement

Making the decision to start taking your Sainsbury’s pension (and maybe even stop working) can be daunting. There’s a lot to take in, but there’s also plenty of help around.

We’ve created an easy-to-read booklet that explains all the different ways you can take your pension from the Sainsbury’s Pension Scheme. Check it out here:

Your retirement options

You can also watch a short video, which briefly takes you through your options and also guides you through the form-filling that is an unfortunate but necessary part of taking your Sainsbury’s pension! Please view the link below and if you want to watch it in full screen you can select the symbol in the bottom right corner of the window after you’ve press play.

There is also lots of information online that can help you understand your options. (Please note that neither Sainsbury’s nor the Trustees have any responsibility for, or liability in relation to, information provided by these external websites and services.)
