The Money and Pensions Service (MaPS) has today released a Beta version of the MoneyHelper consumer website to share with stakeholders and partners, in the next exciting phase of its new consumer brand launch.
MoneyHelper will deliver a single access service for people needing pensions and money guidance by consolidating the MaPS’ legacy brands: Money Advice Service, The Pensions Advisory Service and Pension Wise. Pension Wise will continue to operate as a named service provided by MoneyHelper.
The Beta MoneyHelper site will allow MaPS to continue testing and to gather vital feedback ahead of the full consumer launch in the coming weeks.
While the Beta MoneyHelper site is live, MaPS will not be promoting it to consumers, nor will any webpages beyond the homepage show up on search results. MaPS’ legacy brand websites and services will continue to operate during this transition period.
MaPS has set a working date of 30 June for the full launch of MoneyHelper to consumers, building in some flexibility to that date to ensure the website meets the needs of MaPS, its stakeholders, partners and – above all – consumers.
