This is a single financial guidance body, combining the services previously carried out by three different financial guidance bodies — the Money Advice Service, the Pensions Advisory Service and Pension Wise.
It’s intended to streamline the work of these bodies and will focus on providing individuals with:
- Pensions guidance; and
- Day-to-day money and debt management advice.
It’s also working with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to improve consumer protection and develop plans, involving the voluntary sector, to help develop people’s financial capabilities and understanding.
Please visit www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk for more information.

If you’ve lost touch with the pension scheme of a previous employer, the Pensions Tracing Service can help you track them down. Find out more at: www.gov.uk/find-pension-contact-details.
