1.6 million pension pots lay unclaimed in the UK. Find yours today.
Unclaimed pension pots in the UK add up to an astonishing 20 billion pounds, according to the Association of British Insurers. That's the equivalent of £13,000 per pot.
With more and more people having multiple careers, jobs and stints working in different places, it's unsurprising that so many of us have pension pots with different companies.
In fact, according to Which? the average person will have around 11 different jobs over their lifetime and move home 8 times. And, with many pension companies using written correspondence as their main method of communication, keeping up to date with changes is increasingly difficult.
But, all is not lost! Find out how you can locate your pensions for free below.
How to find out where your pension pots are, and how much you have in them.
We know that life gets busy, so we've made sure you can find your pension pots in one go.
Through our tool, you can ask all of your previous employers whether you have a pension with them and if so, where it is.
To find out where your pension pots are, simply:
- 'Get started' at the top of this page
- Search for and select all of your previous employers
- Send them an access request
The request automatically asks them to locate any pension you have with them.
What if they don't respond to my request?
Don't worry, they have to let you know if you have a pension pot with them within 30 days, or give a valid reason for asking for an extension.
Our tool works by making it easy for you to use the legal rights you have over your own information.
Namely, that you can ask any company what information they have about you, and they have to tell you both what they have and what they're doing with it. This is thanks to your 'right of access' under GDPR law.
Our tool narrows your request down to only ask about your pension, but the same rules apply.
If you don't hear back within 30 days, or need any extra help at all, please get in touch with our customer support team.
What if I'm not sure if I have a pension with a previous employer?
Don't worry! They still have to let you know. With so many unclaimed pension pots in the UK, it's worth finding out in case you do.
