Ever had a nagging feeling that you have a pension pot somewhere but have no idea how to track it down?

Well, there is a solution.

There is a search link on the GOV.UK website at https://www.gov.uk/find-pension-contact-details that will help.

The service will help you find contact details to search for a lost pension by tracking down contact details for:

  • your own workplace or personal pension scheme; or
  • someone else’s scheme if you have their permission.

This service will not tell you whether you have a pension, or what its value is, and you will need the name of an employer or a pension provider to use this service.

If this line of enquiry fails, you could also request contact details from the Pension Tracing Service by phone or by post.
