Exciting news which will affect your Crystal pension

After an in-depth due diligence process the Crystal Trustee has made an agreement with Smart Pension to merge Crystal into the award-winning Smart Pension Master Trust.

A robust plan is in place with the aim of moving your retirement savings around July 2024 and we will keep you updated on the progress of this during the coming months.

Your pension contributions will continue to be paid to Crystal for the time being and you will have all your normal Crystal benefits and access to the usual support including use of the online system evoLink.

More details will be made available here throughout the process and we will contact you to let you know when new information is added.

By ensuring we have your correct details you will never miss out on important information about your Retirement Savings, including when it is time to think about planning for your future. If you need to change these details, head to evolink.evolvepensions.co.uk/register to submit your details.
