Addressing the challenge of deferred small pots

As part of this consultation, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) issued a call for evidence to deepen the evidence base around the scale and characteristics of the growth in the number of deferred small pots.

The consultation is focussed on two large-scale automated consolidation solutions – a default consolidator model and pot follows member – whilst recognising the potential impact of other actions, including member exchange, and enabling more member engagement, that can help mitigate the growth in the number of small pots.
