How to trace a pension
If you don’t have a recent pension statement, the best way to find out your current pension value is to contact your pension provider. If you can’t remember who your pension provider is and you’re trying to trace a workplace pension, contact your former employer and they should be able to tell you the provider.
If you’re still struggling - perhaps because you can’t get hold of your previous employer - then you can try the Pension Tracing Service. This is a database of pension plans that allows you to search for your employer’s name, to see if there’s a record of their pension provider.
Using the Pension Tracing Service
You can search the Pension Tracing Service’s database online, phone the service on 0345 6002 537 or write to them at this address: The Pension Service 9, Mail Handling Site A, Wolverhampton, WV98 1LU.
Bear in mind that the Pension Tracing Service can only provide contact details for pension providers: it won’t tell you whether you have a pension or how much your pension is worth. You’ll need to contact the pension provider to get this information.
PensionBee can locate and combine your old pensions
If you want to combine your pensions into a PensionBee plan, we can match your pensions information with our database to locate your pension.
