What is PensionSync?

PensionSync is a one-stop-shop pension management portal compatible with payroll software. PensionSync collects, validates and formats pension data files straight from your payroll software into Aviva. You won’t need to manually export data, input new employee information, search for opt out information or log into another system to authorise direct debits. It’s seamless and stress free.
