  • 2. Click Submit online.
    If you’re sending online pension submissions for the first time, you must enter your Sage login details. first.
  • 3. When prompted, click Submit.
  • 4. Once your online submission is successfully sent to NEST, the following message appears in the Pension submissions section:
