Get the names of your old pension providers

The first thing we recommend is searching old emails (type “pension” into the search bar) and digging through paperwork (it’s old school but it works!).  

If that doesn’t uncover any treasure, you can also try following the instructions on the GOV website. You will need the names of your old employers. 

Once you’ve got the pension provider names and information, be sure to update your pension tracker to ensure you can find them again in the future. 

Find your account numbers

Make sure you have your date of birth, your National Insurance number and your full name to hand and give each provider a ring (psst, many have live chats on their websites too if you don’t fancy calling).

By verifying your details they should be able to provide you with your account information. 

If you can’t get through, you can also try dropping them an email. We’ve crafted a handy template for you to use. 


You’ve taken a massive step in taking control of your retirement.
