8th August 2018 Anna Rogers comments in IPE on the need for the pensions dashboard
A petition urging the UK government not to scrap plans for a pension dashboard may not be considered for debate in parliament despite gaining more than 100,000 signatures, according to a comment from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
The petition, addressed to Esther McVey, state secretary for work and pensions, has been signed by more than 100,000 people on the campaigning platform 38 Degrees.
“The dashboard really needs to happen if the government wants people to save enough for a decent retirement income,” said Anna Rogers.
“We can’t stop pensions being confusing and a turn off but we can make it easier to get all the information in one place and that would surely help.”
