How to join

Normally you will join the plan automatically at your joining date, but you can choose to opt out if you want to. Government legislation requires us to ‘re-enrol’ you every 3 years; you can of course opt out again.

If you would like to opt in to the Investor Plan please do this through the My Benefits website. If you are unable to access the My Benefits website please contact HR Direct.
