How to trace your pension
This online tool is designed to help you find out whether you have a lost pension and how to trace it.

How long will my pension need to last?
People are living longer. On average, people aged 55 today will live to their mid-to-late 80s. Around 1 in 10 men and 1 in 5 women this age will live to 100 – and receive their telegram from The Monarch.
Being more informed about how much longer you potentially have to live is no bad thing, especially when it comes to financial planning.
Enter your details in to the Office for National Statistics calculator and find out your life expectancy, your chance of living to 100… and how long you’ll likely need to make your pension pot last.

Tax relief calculator
When paying into your pension you receive tax relief, subject to certain limits, on the contributions you make. This tax relief tool shows how tax relief can boost your contributions.
The tool is a guide only and applicable if your contributions are paid directly to your pension provider. Your pension provider will add 20% tax relief automatically to your contribution. For example, a contribution of £100 will only cost you £80. If you are a higher rate tax payer you can claim additional tax relief via a self-assessment.
It doesn't cover how tax relief works if your contributions are taken from your pay before income tax is deducted. If your contributions are paid this way, you get tax relief automatically.
The tool does not confirm if you are eligible to get tax relief on your pension contributions.
