Pensions dashboards: information for data providers

UK-based pension providers, schemes, trusts and administration software providers operating on their behalf, will all supply data to the pensions dashboards ecosystem.

For this to work, data providers need to:

  • prepare data for connection
  • create the appropriate find and view interfaces
  • ensure they are operating within the necessary standards and regulations

To support data providers in their preparations, the following content contains further detail about what providers need to do, relevant detail on timing and how the ecosystem will work. We will add to these resources, as the programme progresses.
