Does Yorkshire-General Life Assurance Still Exist?

Some years ago, my firm at the time had a pension plan with the Yorkshire-General Life Assurance Co Ltd. 2 Rougier Street, York and it was frozen when I left.  I have now reached 65 and wish to redeem it.  Please can you tell me how to contact them, if they still exist.

Answer:

The only record I've been able to find for this company is a record in the National Register of Archives in the UK. It looks from the record as if it ceased doing business in 1969. I am unable to determine from the record I've found whether there is another company that took over Yorkshire-General's assets and liabilities.

The online item I found lists another archive: Aviva Company Archive. I'd suggest checking with them to see if they can give you any additional information.

I'd also consider checking with the Financial Services Authority. You can find them at: http://www.fsa.gov.uk/. They may be able to help you out as well.

I removed your phone number from your comment to protect your privacy. If you have a certificate of membership, you should contact the Financial Services Authority and see if they can tell you who is responsible for the assets of Yorkshire General Life Assurance. I don't have any more information on them.
