A pensions dashboard will show a user their pensions information online, securely and all in one place. To make this work, multiple parties and technical services need to be connected – in what we’re referring to as an ecosystem.
The ecosystem encompasses dashboards themselves, data providers’ find and view interfaces to the ecosystem, and the central digital architecture. The Pensions Dashboards Programme (PDP) is responsible for delivering the digital architecture and services, which will enable data providers and dashboard operators to inter-operate.
There is no central database within the ecosystem that holds personal information supplied by users or pensions information. Instead, the ecosystem functions like a giant switchboard, connecting users with their pensions via dashboards.
