The Government’s Pension Tracing Service will only provide users with the contact details of past pension providers. The individual will then have to get in touch with the provider themselves to find out more information. The Government's Pension Tracing Service does not tell people whether they have a pension at the pension provider nor the value of any pension pots held.
On the other hand, Mintago’s Pension Hunter finds, identifies, and obtains the value of the individual's lost pension and adds it to their Mintago Pension Dashboard. Here they can consolidate it with other pension pots they may have found through us, before using that information to help plan their retirement and manage future pension contributions.
