Do the pensions playback

When you’re busy meeting the demands of daily life, your pension can easily slip off your to-do list. Has it been a while since you paid your pension some attention?  

The good news is you don’t have to be a financial expert to get the most out of your pension. And it doesn’t have to eat into your already busy schedule either. A few simple steps can set you on the right track for retirement.  

It’s time to stick your favourite record on and go back for your future. Do The Pensions Playback to discover the next step on your savings journey.

If you’ve changed jobs throughout your life, it’s likely you were enrolled in pension schemes with different providers. That means you might have pension pots from previous jobs and your money is out there waiting for you.

You can track down old pensions for free using the Pension Tracing Service. You’ll need to provide a few details about the company you worked for, as well as some basic information about yourself. They’ll use that information to search a huge database and find your old pension.
