Responding the the Government's Dormant Assets Scheme Expansion Report, Andy Walker, Manager of Long-Term Savings Policy at the Association of British Insurers, said:
'The ABI and our members have done a lot of work through our Gone-Aways Framework, and through supporting the creation of pensions dashboards, to help reconnect customers with their lost savings. Today's report is a positive step towards ensuring there is widespread best practice in efforts to find lost customers, and where it's not possible to do so - support a number of good causes.
'With an estimated £20 billion currently sitting in lost pensions, the message to customers is: It's your money, come and claim it. This is an incredibly important initiative and since Government support is needed, we look forward to working together on its implementation.'
