    Pru company pension 13th Feb 18 at 2:13 PM
    Hi. In the early 90's, I had a job with the Prudential. Due to reorganisation, my job only lasted for some two years but during that time, I was a member of the company pension scheme.
    I have now reached 65, claimed my state pension and am just wondering how to make enquiries into how to claim the vast wealth that those two years will have amounted to.
    There are no Prudential offices anymore to pop into and ask so I'd be grateful to hear from anyone who knows how I can claim whatever there is to claim.
    Regards,
    David

    You contact prudential's HR. Do not contact their retail side as that doesn't apply to you.

    The scheme retirement date is 60, so you should have heard from them if you had retained benefits and were entitled to a pension.

    You should have been given a statement when you left, detailing your benefits. One problem might be that, if you didn't complete two years pensionable service (perhaps due to a period on contract or probation), you wouldn't have preserved any benefits with the scheme. You would have been entitled to a return of contributions but as the scheme was non-contributory that would mean no return.

    He may not have done - in one scheme I know, the leavers were simply told scheme pension age and to contact the Administrator shortly before reaching it.

    If you want the current help desk number....
    Pru scheme admin has recently been moved to PSAL. The number is;
    01245 673515
    or email at :
    pspsdb@puntersouthall.com

    Ive just been speaking to them about transfer values to a SIPP.
    The website does not currently support login to manage your pension if not currently active so the phone is about your only option.

    On a side note, having received my CETV, it seems that the ship has sailed now on high transfer values from gold plated pensions. Not that im surprised. Should have done it a year ago maybe!
