How to trace a lost pension

Tracing a lost pension usually involves contacting your old employers or seeing if the government’s Pension Tracing Service can help. Or, if you want to combine your old pensions into a PensionBee plan, PensionBee can find your lost pensions for you.

Trace your lost pensions

If you’ve lost one or more pensions, you can get in touch with your old employers to find out who your workplace pension providers are, and then contact your pension providers directly to get details about your pensions.

You’ll probably need to provide at least your name, address and National Insurance number so that your pension provider can verify your identity.

You can also try the Pension Tracing Service, a database of pension provider contact details that you can search by employer name.

You can find more information on our in-depth page about finding your pensions.

PensionBee can help you to locate and transfer your pensions

If you want to combine your pensions into a PensionBee plan so that you can manage your retirement saving online in one place, we can help you to locate your old pensions.

Sign up to PensionBee and give us some information about you and your previous employers. We’ll then check our database to find your pension providers. Once we know who your pension providers are, we’ll speak to them to get your pension balances and move your pensions across to your new plan.

Risk warning

As always with investments, your capital is at risk. The value of your investment can go down as well as up, and you may get back less than you invest. This information should not be regarded as financial advice.
