The Pensions Advisory Service (TPAS)

The Pensions Advisory Service (TPAS) is an independent non-profit organisation that provides free information and guidance on the whole spectrum of pensions, including state, company, personal and stakeholder schemes.

About Us

We are an independent voluntary organisation that is grant-aided by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

We provide information and guidance to members of the public on all pension matters, covering state, company, personal and stakeholder schemes.

We also help any member of the public who has a problem, complaint or dispute with their occupational or private pension arrangement.  We do not deal with problems, complaints or disputes relating to state pensions.

Our service is free and is provided by a nationwide network of volunteer advisers who are supported and augmented by technical and administrative staff based in London.

We are very proud of the calibre of our personnel.  Our volunteers and pensions technical staff have many years experience working in the pensions industry and have a wide range of professional qualifications.

The Team will bring everyone up to date with the new developments in taxation and pensions for those approaching and in retirement.

The TPAS Helpline

We operate a national telephone helpline, manned by pension professionals who will provide information and guidance on any aspect of occupational, personal, stakeholder and state pensions. It serves members of the public but not those acting in a professional capacity such as financial advisers, solicitors, scheme trustees, etc.

The helpline number is 0800 011 3797.

The helplines are open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. You can call outside of these times and leave a number for someone to call you back.

Friendly, No jargon. Just friendly guidance. For free.
