Alexa, Ask Aviva What’s the Value of My Pension
Aviva has created a new pension skill for Amazon Alexa which allows customers to find out how much they have saved towards their retirement.
Customers registered on MyAviva can link the skill to their Alexa account and then ask the voice assistant to tell them the value of their pension pot. (Aviva Canada have also developed a skill which allows consumers to ask Alexa for a motor insurance quote.)
“The new Aviva skill transforms the way people can connect with their pension, allowing them to effortlessly find out their latest pension value from the comfort of their home. Increasing people’s interest in pension saving will only happen if we make it easy for them to check on their progress. The Aviva Alexa skill and our MyAviva app can really help people take control of their retirement planning.” – Aviva’s Managing Director of UK & International Digital, Blair Turnbull.
Bottom Line: Figures from research carried out by Aviva show that people don’t tend to regularly check their pension balance. A third (34%) say they do so annually while 1 in 5 (21%) say it is less often than that.
