If your policy does fall within the above number ranges but has been assigned (e.g. to a bank for a mortgage), has a noted interest or belongs to an occupational scheme then you will not be able to view the details of that policy online.

If you are a member of an occupational pension scheme which has a policy number that falls within the above range, then you may be able to view the details of that policy online if the scheme trustees have given their permission. If they have, details of that policy will automatically be added to your login details and you will be able to view policy details in the same way as you can for your own policies. If the scheme trustees have not given their permission you will not be able to view details of that policy online.

Access to policies outside these number ranges is not yet available. Any expansion to the service will be advertised on the website.
