The Pensions Administration Standards Association has launched an industry-wide survey to test its proposals for the rollout of the pensions dashboards.
Kim Gubler wants dashboards to be launched as soon as possible but notes challenges with personal data matching will mean the primary focus should be on ensuring pensions are correctly found not on displaying income amounts.
Darren Philp says the dashboard programme team should be congratulated on the work it has done to put together a properly scoped out and stress tested plan that will maximise the chance of the project's success
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.
While the dashboard timeline needs to be flexible enough to help the least well-prepared schemes get ready, Nigel Peaple says schemes are being constructive and solution-focused.
The government’s focus on pensions dashboards and pension transfer times will require the industry to improve its data accuracy and administrative efficiency, says Anthony Rafferty.
Getting data ready and providing estimated retirement incomes may be difficult, but the industry must do its best to make dashboards a reality, says Nigel Peaple
