Finding a lost pension

If you think you've lost, misplaced or forgotten about a pension you paid in to in a previous job then there’s a free service you can use to help trace it.

Changes in our life circumstances (such as moving house or job, for example) can sometimes break the relationship between a pension fund and the pension holder.
