Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Pensions Dashboard

Mike Wood: What steps the Government have taken to enable industry to deliver the pensions dashboard.

 

Guy Opperman The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Work and Pensions

An industry-led pensions dashboard, facilitated by Government, will harness industry innovation and provide an opportunity for the pensions industry to step up and take a leading role. We have engaged with the industry and are assessing the feasibility of a dashboard. We will report shortly on the findings.

 

Mike Wood: Does the Minister agree that for the pensions dashboard to be effective, it must be comprehensive, which means enjoying support right across the sector? If so, what is he doing to achieve this?

 

Guy Opperman The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Work and Pensions

It was a pleasure to visit my hon. Friend’s constituency in the summer and to meet many of the 10,000-plus people there who are auto-enrolled. We are in daily contact with industry figures as we prepare our feasibility report and plan for the roll-out of the dashboard.
