Website availability and information

We will make every effort to provide you with continuous access to the 4myplan website but cannot guarantee its availability at any time. If you are unable to access the website and would like to check your pension benefits or send us an instruction, please call 0117 937 8700 and speak to a member of the BBS administration team.

4myplan is provided on an ‘information only’ basis. This means that none of the information published or shown throughout the website constitutes financial advice, promotion or a recommendation for you to take any particular course of action. BBS does not provide individual financial advice to members; if you make any decisions in relation to your pension account you should seek independent financial advice from a suitably authorised adviser. If you do not have a financial adviser, you can find one at unbiased.co.uk.

We will use reasonable effort to ensure the information provided through 4myplan is current and correct. However, we cannot guarantee that all information will be error free. In particular, certain information may be provided by a third party (for example, an external investment manager) and we are not liable for any inaccuracies, errors or omissions in the information they have provided.

Any fund values, projected future values or benefit projections calculated using the interactive tools within 4myplan are not guaranteed and are provided for illustration purposes only.

You are responsible for ensuring your login information (such as your username and password) are kept secure. You must not disclose your login information to anyone else. We recommend you change your password on a regular basis and do not use the same password for 4myplan as you use for any other online account. Any instructions sent or actions undertaken through the website using your login information will be treated as a genuine request made by you. Members are responsible for any losses arising from actions undertaken through 4myplan using your login details.
