What do Scottish Widows need from me?

We will need the following details from you to help us combine the pensions you transfer to us:

  • Your National Insurance Number
  • The existing pension provider’s name
  • The policy number of each pension you want to transfer to us
  • Scheme name (if it’s a workplace pension)
  • A recent transfer value for each pension
  • Your Scottish Widows pension policy number, if you have one.

How long will it take?

It typically takes from two to four weeks from start to finish, from contacting your previous providers, to adding your transfer payment into your pension.

What happens next?

If you want to transfer your pensions to us just press ‘Ready to Transfer’ and we will ask a few questions to help us make your application easier.

If you have what you need, you’re ready.
