Once you've created your password, you'll be taken to the 'Your pension' page. You can sign in at any time with your email address and new password.
Signing in with a letter from your employer
If your employer doesn’t give us your email address when they set up your account, they’re responsible for providing you with temporary account details like these:

To sign in with your temporary account details:
Go to the sign in page provided in your letter
Enter your temporary username in the email/username field, and your temporary password in the password field
Click the Sign in button.
You will then be prompted to enter your date of birth.
