What are pensions dashboards?

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.

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

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

Why was the Pensions Dashboards Programme introduced?

The PDP is an ambitious initiative introduced to boost consumers' engagement with their pensions as well as making it easier for them to re-connect with lost pensions pots.

​The Pensions Dashboards Programme will create a central ecosystem for pension schemes and providers to connect to on a compulsory basis.
