What is My Pension Online?

To keep up to date with your pension YOU MUST register for a My Pension Online (MPO) account. This is a secure portal that allows you to check and manage your Teachers’ Pension online in a variety of ways including:-

  • Viewing your Benefit Statement*
  • Changing your personal details
  • Increasing your pension payments to receive additional benefits
  • Viewing your employment history
  • Nominating a beneficiary for your pension
  • Nominating a beneficiary for your death grant
  • Providing access to a secure contact us facility
  • Tracking any forms you’ve submitted to see their status
  • Accessing pension benefits calculators where you can see how choices at retirement and when you retire will affect your pension.

*Please note you won’t be able to view a Benefit Statement for up to two years after entering pensionable employment.

Signing up for an MPO Account is easy. All you need is:

1. Your Teachers’ Pensions Reference number*
2. Your National Insurance number
3. An email address (we recommend a personal one- as when you change employer you can lose access to your establishment account).

*Your Teachers’ Pensions Reference number is also known as your Department for Education (DfE) number.

For new members starting to teach in Higher or Further Education, you may not have your Teachers’ Pensions Reference number and therefore you’ll need to speak to your employer or contact us directly.

An MPO account really is the most convenient way to keep track of your pension! Make sure you sign up now.
