Committee to question Pensions Regulator, FCA and MaPS
20 September 2021
The Work and Pensions Committee will question the Pensions Regulator, Financial Conduct Authority and Money and Pensions Service in the third oral evidence session of the inquiry examining the options open to people when they come to access their pensions, and the advice and guidance available.
Purpose of the session
The session is likely to focus on the role of regulators when people access their savings, the effectiveness of advice and guidance and the latest on the development of pension dashboards.
The accessing pension savings inquiry is part of the Committee’s work examining the impact of the pension freedoms and the protection of savers and follows on from its report on pension scams. The freedoms were introduced in 2015 with the aim of giving people aged over 55 more control over how and when they could access their savings.
The Committee previously held sessions with pension policy experts and representative bodies and pension industry representatives.
