Here's the new thread for letting us know you've Reclaimed lost cash, whether from bank accounts, premium bonds, pensions or investments.

We want to hear about all about your successes, including:

  • How much you got back
  • What sort of financial product it was
  • Which methods you used to reclaim it (My Lost Account, Pensions Tracing Service etc)
  • How long it took to get your money back

If you want to discuss the process in general, rather than share a success story, please use the Reclaim lost assets for free discussion.

    I've just signed up to the Gretel service mentioned in the article and it automatically pulled all of my previous addresses. However, it hasn't found anything yet, so fingers crossed it starts to find things over the months....

    No success. I registered with my lost account but still waiting 2 months later for NSandI to get back to me with details of my lost childhood Post Office Counters savings account.

    Has anyone had recent success with tracing a pension recently? I'd love to hear details.
