Very few people these days will work for the same company throughout their working life. As people move from company to company, they may leave small pension pots behind.
Over time, it can be difficult to track down past pensions. Equally, as people move house the data held by past pensions schemes could become out of date.
It’s been estimated that over £3 billion of personal pensions or company pensions may be unclaimed (Pension Tracing Service, 2013). Few people, if any, can afford to ignore previous pension pots.
The good news is the Pension Tracing Service can help. It has details of a large number of pension schemes and can help people trace previous pensions. What’s more, it’s completely free of charge.
If you can’t find the current contact details of the pension scheme you’re looking for, contact the Pension Tracing Service and find out if they can help you.
