Comment on MaPS update on Pensions Dashboards
Anthony Rafferty, Managing Director, Origo comments:
"We’re pleased to see that the Department for Work and Pensions’ (DWP) candidate architecture for the Pensions Dashboards, in particular the Pension Finder Service, is to be taken forward by MaPs.
We’re also supportive of the approach taken to the data standards, focusing on find and view functionality – an approach that is consistent with annual benefit statement data and as such will enable greater engagement from providers.
The proposal that the architecture should be flexible to support deeper levels of data such as contributions and investments at a future date is positive.
And finally, we’re pleased to see that the differences between Pensions Dashboards Project and Open Banking are recognised, whilst acknowledging that that there is potential for collaboration on best practices and processes.
We look forward to working with the project’s various stakeholders to continue to deliver the technology in making Pensions Dashboards a reality for UK citizens.“
