Find your lost and old pensions

If you've moved jobs during your working life, you may have lost track of some of the pension schemes for previous companies you've worked for. You can contact previous employers and pension providers to get the details of these, although this can be time-consuming.

We're working on a tracing service which is coming soon. So for a small fee of £100, we'll be able to do the hard work for you.

Before you go any further

If you want to find and combine your pensions into one product, our consolidation service is already live and ready to help you do this.
