Through working life it is common for people to have multiple pensions. In years gone by pension providers have communicated exclusively via post, so finding the details of such schemes means digging out paperwork from the attic, the basement or working out who to call.
The pension tracing service is a free service that you can use if you know the name of your employer or the pension provider at the time. You’ll get details of the provider and you can make contact to retrieve your pension, update your contact details and decide what you want to do with it.
Lost bank accounts
mylostaccount.org.uk can help you trace lost personal accounts if you are unsure of which bank or building society holds the account to which you have entitlement, including instances where the bank or building society has since closed or merged. NS&I investments can also be traced using this service.
