Spring Clean Your Finances and Find Hidden Treasure

15 June 2022

Although the people of the UK are constantly being warned that they are facing a pensions crunch in the future, in fact, hundreds of thousands of them are owed money in “lost” personal and company pensions.

The world of work has changed significantly over the past few decades. These days, the “job for life” concept has long gone. Now, people switch employers on a regular basis, and this has led to most people having multiple small pensions that are all too easy to lose track of.

Many pension providers are simply sitting on those assets, often long after those who are entitled to claim them reach the age of 75 or older. The problem is compounded by the fact that people change address relatively frequently, so it becomes difficult for those providers to make contact.

Yet, since only 40% of people aged 55 or older expect to be comfortably off during their retirement, it’s never been more important to locate that lost pension money. Fortunately, there are ways to do this by spring cleaning your finances to find your hidden treasure.

How can I find my missing pensions?

If you believe you have money in missing pensions out there, there are a few ways that you can track them down. If you’re rapidly approaching retirement, locating this hidden treasure could give you a valuable financial boost once you quit work, and if you’re still saving up, you may be able to find a higher-performing scheme that could put your existing funds to better use.
