    Help with old share certificates and pension contributions

    Help with old share certificates and pension contributions 22nd Aug 08 at 12:49 PM
    I am new to this forum, so sorry if not posted in correct threads.

    I would like advise re some share certificates I have and pension contributions i have made.
    I worked some years ago for The Burton Group Plc who were taken over by GE Capital. I was made redundant in 1991, I received monies from them and a letter from personnel outlining other info.
    I have in my possession a share certificate showing 130 shares, appropriation date Dec 88 in the Burton group profit sharing scheme.
    The shares are valued at this date at £1.87 each. The registrar is National Westminster Bank plc based at Caxton house, Bristol.

    How do I check into these shares, ie value of them now and cashing them in?

    Also I have two staff superannuatin fund certificates showing contributions at £535.71 and £182.17. It states on the bottom of the certificates that on leaving service options, I could be eligible for a refund of contributions with interest, less statutory deductions? I thought you could not have any money back until pension age or transfer to another pension scheme.
    I am currently unemployed, aged 45 and unlikely to work full time again. What are my options with these certifcates - can I cash them in or would I have to wait until pension age or working and then transfer to another pension fund I choose to set up?

    Many thanks for any advice given.
