    Who were the funds dispersed to?

    My husband had a pension from a previous employer.

    When he neared pension age he tried to trace it and found out the company had ceased trading any years before.

    He did eventually find somebody on Facebook who had also worked there and had traced the pension funds. My husband contacted them and they confirmed that they had the funds and updated their records with his current address.
