How to sign up

A helping hand - we'll guide and support you through the sign-up process at every stage.


The process

 If you are a practice and wish to sign up to the RIBA Pension in time for auto enrolment, please download the application form and fact find form.

All sections need to be completed so if you need any assistance, please contact us on 020 7307 3737. You may also wish to email draft versions to us at for checking.

Once the forms are finalised they should be sent together, by post, to:

The RIBA Pension
HS Admin
25 Goodlass Road
Liverpool L24 9HJ

Your application will be forwarded to the RIBA Pension trustee for compliance checks and HS Admin, the pension administrators, will get in touch with you if they have any questions. Normally, you can expect to receive a counter-signed copy of the RIBA Pension application form within 2 weeks.

You will also receive, at around the same time, a secure email inviting you to register on the RIBA Pension employer portal and upload your payroll data. If you are staging, the compliance software will then automatically generate your worker assessment report which you should review carefully - preferably with the support of a regulated financial adviser - in order to decide on the details of your pension arrangements.

If you are a practice wishing to sign up to the RIBA Pension prior to your staging date, or a sole practitioner, please contact the RIBA Pension team for more information.
