    A quick google suggests they were taken over by Phoenix Life.

    As an aside - where were you working when you took out the policy with NPI?  It's possible that you might be eligible for compensation if you could have had a better benefit staying/joining a work pension scheme instead as work & private pensions could not be combined at that time. When you contact them state you want a pension review done.

    Mid 80s would make it pre-regulation (which started in 1988).  It also means it won't be a personal pension but likely a section 226 retirement annuity contract (it could be other sections but a 226 is the most common).   So, unlikely to be any missale.

    Plus, NPI at that time didn't have a saleforce. They only received business via brokers (IFAs didn't exist until 1988).  So, they cannot carry out a pension review.    NPI only had a small salesforc
