Older People: Retirement

Volume 714: debated on Thursday 5 November 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government further to their report Building a Society for all ages (page 20, paragraph 15), what will happen to information input by individuals in the course of reviewing options for retirement using those interactive tools; whether the tools will be compartmentalised so that the pension service and private information providers will not have access to information given to the other; how long information supplied in the course of an option review will be held by the service providers; and whether it will be transferred to an archive. [HL5830]

There are no plans at present to store or transfer any information on individuals being input into the One Stop Shop website. The data will be cleared at the end of each session. In the event of any future modifications to the site which allow for the storing of individual information, all data security procedures will be explored and relevant security legislation complied with.
