Commenting on today’s announcement of a Pension Schemes Bill, Chris Curry, Principal Director of the Pensions Dashboards Industry Delivery Group at MaPS, said:
“To ensure pensions dashboards are a trusted and valuable service, they need the right robust framework in place. Our work is progressing, and the measures set out in the Pensions Schemes Bill are another essential part of delivering high quality dashboards. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with industry, regulators, government and consumer representatives during 2020.”
The Money and Pensions Service (MaPS) is supporting the delivery of the infrastructure needed to establish pensions dashboards, which will enable consumers to see all their pension savings together online. This work is being taken forward by a delivery group, supported by a steering group representing the pensions sector, consumers and fintech.
