PP's sister publication Professional Adviser has released its latest podcast, covering everything you need to know about the pensions dashboard.
The Pro Adviser podcast comes after the government's recent response to its consultation on the pension dashboard, with the long-term government-backed project expected to bear fruit for the pensions sector before the end of 2019.
And, to explain all, PA news editor Tom Ellis is joined by dashboard virtuoso James Phillips, news editor of Professional Pensions.
Phillips tells PA what to expect from the technology, what kind of pensions will and will not appear on the dashboard in its early days, and where it is set to be hosted.
And, after the collapse of the British Steel Pension Scheme caused so much trouble in the advice sector, Phillips discusses whether we can expect any similar defined benefit dramas as scheme deficits continue to rise.
