Responding to reports that a Pension Dashboard could be available within months Helen Morrissey, pension specialist at Royal London, said: 

“After years of talk about the Pension Dashboard we need to ensure that what is delivered meets people’s expectations from the start. If done properly the dashboard will give people a full understanding of what they have saved. If it is rushed, or we don’t have all interested parties on board from the beginning, there is a risk that we will not be able to deliver something meaningful or credible and the opportunity to engage people will be lost. In addition, the government’s plan to provide a link to state pension is simply not good enough - pressure needs to be put on HMRC to get the state pension data integrated from day one if the dashboard is to work. The opportunity presented by the dashboard is too important to be lost - we must get it right first time.”
