You'll need to contact your previous employers and ask who administered the pension whilst you worked there. Reach out to the administrator and ask them to send you an up to date pension statement, alternatively contact us ur team can do this for you at no cost.
Not necessarily. Depending on which company you worked for and the time period of your employment, you may have been enrolled in the company pension automatically - this is generally the case with defined benefit pensions
If your provider does not offer an option that suits you, you should be able to transfer your defined contribution pension to another provider at any age before you begin taking a drawdown. Before deciding on transferring it is important to understand exactly how that pension fits within your overall retirement plans.
A Defined Contribution (DC) pension is based on how much has been contributed to the pot, and the growth of that money over time. A Defined Benefit (DB) Pension will offer you a guaranteed amount of money each year in retirement.
