Tracing a lost pension - Pension Tracing Service

The Pension Tracing Service is a free service run by the government's Department for Work and Pensions. They won't be able to find out the value of your pension, but will help you locate your provider so you can get in touch with them.

What you'll need before you use the service

For personal pensions:

  • the name of the insurance company who administered the pension.

For a pension you had with your previous employer:

  • the name of the employer or pension scheme (or group name);
  • the employer's type of business;
  • dates of employment;
  • your job title;
  • date you joined the scheme; and
  • last known address of the employer.
