Why use Aviva’s Pension Discovery Service
How it works
Once you’ve decided to track down your pensions, we can get right on it. It can take around three to six months to hunt them down. The time it takes will depend on whether you have a lot of information on your past pensions, and how quickly your previous providers get back to us. Whatever happens, we’ll keep you updated with our progress.
Sorry, we can't give pension reports for defined benefit pensions, but we'll send on any details that your provider has so you can contact them directly.
Tell us as much information as you can about where you’ve worked and any possible pensions. We can search for as many pensions as you like. Once we’re working on it, we’ll send you a confirmation email.
We'll keep you posted
We can then use everything you tell us to search for your pensions and contact your pension providers. You'll get updates along the way, and we'll let you know if we need anything else.
Get your free report
Once we have information back from your providers, we’ll send you a detailed report for each pension we find – other than defined benefit pensions. Then you can decide what to do. If you'd like to bring them together in your Aviva pension, we can do that too.
Already have your pensions?
We have a separate service that can help you bring your pensions together. With all your money in one Aviva pension, you’ll have a clearer idea of your retirement fund. Plus, there’s less admin for you and you could even benefit from lower charges.
