Will government kill off the pension dashboard?


This is a 528 word blog post about speculation that the government is planning to kill of its pension dashboard project and what this could mean. Written on the 24th July 2018.



Recent reports suggest that the government could terminate the long-awaited pension dashboard project. The project is important because people often build up a number of different pension pots during their working lifetime. The government has estimated that people accumulate an average of eleven different pension pots. When added to state pension entitlement and any final salary occupational pensions, it can be difficult to understand your overall retirement planning picture. As things stand, in order to get this overview you need to look at the details for each pension pot separately. This can be time consuming and often confusing, trying to consolidate all of the information in one place.
