A petition urging the government not to scrap its support for the pensions dashboard has attracted more than 125,000 signatures since its launch some three weeks ago.
The petition is addressed to the secretary of state for work and pensions Esther McVey and has called on the government not to "scrap" the project.
Within a week of its creation, the petition gathered more than 82,000 signatures and has steadily continued to rise since, bringing the total to 126,143 at the time of writing.
The petition came after McVey was reported to be preparing to "kill off" the government's involvement in the scheme during parliament's summer recess.
Only petitions started on the joint government and parliament petitions site are considered for debate in the House of Commons.
The dashboard petition was published on the 38 Degrees website, and not on the joint government and parliament petitions site.
Speaking in an evidence session in parliament with the Work and Pensions Committee last month, pensions and financial inclusion minister Guy Opperman did little to dismiss the rumours of a doomed dashboard.
Instead, he told the committee that "no decision has been made" on the future of the dashboard and "it's probably not appropriate for me to comment any further than that".
The Department for Work and Pensions is still set to publish a feasibility study on the project, which will assess whether compulsion is needed, if there should be multiple dashboards, and who should host the online tool.
The study had been due to be published in March but has been delayed, with Opperman now saying it would be published "fairly soon".
'Essential to help engaged retirement planning'
Origio managing director Anthony Rafferty, whose firm successfully ran a test to accommodate 15 million active users of the dashboard, said the benefits of the pensions dashboard are "easily seen and have clearly struck a chord with people".
"We at Origo have been passionate supporters of the pensions dashboard since the initiative was launched," he said, "believing it is essential to help individuals engage with their retirement planning, particularly in the new pensions environment which was ushered in with the pensions freedoms.
"The pension dashboard is a superb opportunity for government and the industry to provide a simple way for UK pension holders in the country to track their pensions, understand their value and what that means for their future and where appropriate, to act on their data in their best interests."
Defined benefit (DB) schemes that provide GMPs must revisit and, where necessary, top-up historic cash equivalent transfer values (CETVs) that have been calculated on an unequal basis, a landmark court judgment said last week.
Technology platform PensionSync has partnered with quantum employment pioneer My Digital to help contractors and employers manage pensions as more workers do temporary work for multiple firms.
Capita Pensions has partnered with data technology solutions firm Intellica to tackle the GMP equalisation challenges facing pension schemes.
The Hewlett Packard Retirement Benefit Plan has reappointed EQ Paymaster as its third-party administrator (TPA) for five years.
Schemes and their administrators have rightly received much praise for ensuring that pensions have continued to be paid in full and on time during an unprecedented period of disruption.
