Some of you will be familiar with the idea of the Pensions Dashboard; what you may not be aware of is that the idea is a lot closer to becoming reality than many people think. Dashboards will fundamentally change a member’s access to their data. Rather than the Trustee or employer pushing out invitations and setting the rules on security and access, Dashboards will change this model, introducing more options for accessing data and the individual dashboard a member selects will determine the security level.

The Pensions Dashboard programme is being overseen by the Money and Pensions Service (MaPS) and they are currently consulting on the proposals for dashboards. Find out more about the proposals at www.pensionsdashboardsprogramme.org.uk/2021/02/18/identity-call-for-input-data-providers/
