AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

How can I track down a pension from a former employer?

En español | Start with some basic detective work. Do an online search. Or check at the reference department of your local library or at your state's corporation commission. Be prepared to spend time talking to officials.

If these efforts fail, the Department of Labor's Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) may be able to help. To get in touch with an EBSA benefits adviser, go to the organization’s “Contact Us” Web page or call 1-866-444-3272 toll-free (TTY 1-877-899-5627 toll-free for the deaf or hard of hearing).
