Data standards: realising the potential of pensions dashboards
I truly believe that pensions dashboards have the potential to utterly transform the way we all think about and plan for retirement. They will reconnect savers with lost pension pots, engage those who may be under-saving, and help savers take greater control of their financial futures.

Call for Input on working papers on data standards
Throughout 2020, the Pensions Dashboards Programme will be progressing the pensions dashboards initiative. A key element of our work is the development of the data standards with which pension providers and schemes will have to comply. The Call for Input is now closed.

Why have the Industry Delivery Group changed their name to the Pensions Dashboards Programme?
We (with support from government delivery partners and key stakeholders) have decided to change our name to the Pensions Dashboards Programme to reflect the fact that this is a significant programme of work with multiple delivery partners across government and industry. Industry do and will continue to play a critical role in making pensions dashboards a reality and are represented on the PDP Steering Group and via industry Working Groups.
Why won’t you set a date for when you expect dashboards to be available to the public?
We plan to lay out a more detailed timeline by the end of the year. What we are clear about is that services will only launch to the public when a number of key requirements have been met, including enough pension schemes being able to participate with good standards of data, robust security, and with thorough testing of the user experience.
What information will I be able to see on pensions dashboards when they launch?
It’s expected the first dashboards will show quite simple information, similar to what’s available on your annual benefit statements or on request from your pension provider. Recognising that you will want to know more about your pensions on future dashboards we will regularly review the information available to you.
