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.
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 PDP will create a central ecosystem for pension schemes and providers to connect to on a compulsory basis.
