2024 pensions dashboards update

2024 stands to be a pivotal year for pensions dashboards preparations. 

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) published guidance on 25 March 2024 setting out a staged timetable for connection to the Pensions Dashboards today. The first pensions schemes to connect to pensions dashboards are to do so by 30 April 2025.

What are pensions dashboards?

Pensions dashboards will allow pension scheme members to securely access and view all of their separate pensions information online, all in one place.

They will provide members with a holistic view of their pensions, providing them with the information they need to make informed decisions, reunite forgotten pots, and project their income needs. 

The Pensions Dashboards Programme (PDP) was created by the Money and Pensions Service as the body responsible for designing and implementing the central digital architecture to make pensions dashboards work.

Pension providers are compelled to connect to pensions dashboards by a staging date, with dates varying depending on scheme type and size.
