Pension Tracing Service

Can help in tracing old pension schemes

Phone us on

Services provided:

If someone thinks they may have an old pension, but are not sure of the details, the Pension Tracing Service can usually help by tracing it.

It can be easy, for instance, if someone has changed jobs a number of times through their working life to have lost contact with a previous employer and their pension scheme. The Pension Tracing Service has access to a database of over 200,000 occupational and personal pension schemes and can be used, free of charge, to search for a scheme. They may be able to provide an up-to-date contact address for a pension scheme which can then be used to contact the pension provider to pursue any financial entitlement.

To apply for a pension scheme to be traced, phone 0845 6002 537 (Textphone 0845 3000 169) for an application form or complete the online form.

Opening hours:

Monday – Friday, 8.00am – 6.00pm.
