What is pension tracing?
Pension tracing is an easy way of finding your old pensions.
Whether it’s going from job to job, moving addresses or changing names, it can be easy to lose track of your previous pensions.
Our pension tracing service uses whatever information you might have – from old pension numbers to your employment history – to track down and check the details of those pensions pots. We'll then give you an overview of each one - and with Aviva, that's all free.
How does pension tracing work with Aviva?
With Aviva’s free Find and Combine service you can ask us to trace any UK workplace pensions or personal ones where you know the provider. We can also check the details of pensions you know about.
You give us as much information as you can. Pension information is great, but if you only have details of where you’ve worked, that’s fine too. Then we’ll start tracking them down.
Get the details
We'll bring your pension details together - you'll usually be able to view these online. We'll let you know about certain benefits you could lose or charges you'd need to pay if you transfer them. You can see what we check for here.
Decide what to do
Once you’ve considered all the information, it’s up to you what to do next. You can leave your pensions where they are or maybe transfer them to another provider. Our Find and Combine service also gives you the option of bringing them together into a new or existing pension with Aviva.
Remember, the value of a pension can go down as well as up – and you could get back less than the amount that's been put in.
