How to unlock your hidden pension pots

What would you do if you found £13,000 you didn’t know you had? You actually could be sitting on this much extra cash and not know it, as there are unclaimed pension pots worth £20 billion in the UK, averaging £13,000 each. People change jobs and move homes so often that it’s easy to lose track of old pensions.

The thing is, if you’re a woman, you will certainly need that money. Why? The gender pension gap means your money needs to work even harder in the years leading up to retirement – by retirement age, the median pension wealth of women is about a third of men’s.2
