The People’s Pension responds to the Queen’s Speech

Responding to the Queen’s Speech, Gregg McClymont, director of policy at The People’s Pension, said:

“It’s good to see the return of the Pensions Schemes Bill mentioned in today’s Queen’s Speech. But, to make the pensions dashboard a success, it’s vital that savers can see all their pension information – including the State Pension and public pensions – in one place.

“And if the Government is intent on delivering multiple dashboards, a number of measures are necessary to gain the public’s confidence. Total coverage is crucial; charges must be included from the outset to achieve transparency; and tough consumer protection measures are needed to ensure savers’ best interests are always put first.”
