Evolve Pensions has launched a new member website called Evolink for its Crystal master trust, which includes additional online functionality to its previous system.
The website, launched this week, allows Crystal members to access all relevant data held on their pension records whether accumulating, deferred or in drawdown.
It comes after the firm wound up its BlueSky master trust and moved members to Crystal in October. The 43,000 members in the then Crystal Trust have access to the website now, while the 45,000 BlueSky transferees will have access from January.
The majority of daily administration tasks can be completed online with further functionality under the system, including a modeller due for release in the next few months, Evolve Pensions said.
Meanwhile other services including Robo Advice and IFA support are planned for 2020. It is also adding two more drawdown options in the new year, in addition to four options already available to its members.
Evolve Pensions chief executive Paul Bannister said: "Following a period of consultation with trustees, clients and members, the new Evolink provides members with a straightforward way of interacting with Evolve to manage their pension savings online with the continued support of the administration teams at Evolve."
The previous BlueSky and then Crystal Trust were granted authorisation by The Pensions Regulator in April, and were among the 39 master trusts to have been given the green light by the start of November.

Master trusts’ investment strategies have grown and become more sophisticated over the last three years, but “growing pains” are hindering progress, according to the Defined Contribution Investment Forum (DCIF).
