The Money and Pensions Service (sometimes stylized as Money & Pensions Service) is an organisation whose statutory objective is to develop and co-ordinate a national strategy to improve people’s financial capabilities. The service provides free money guidance and debt advice online and by telephone.
The service was launched in January 2019, combining the Money Advice Service, The Pensions Advisory Service and Pension Wise to form a single guidance body. The decision to merge the organisations into one body was originally announced in March 2016 by HM Treasury and confirmed in the Queen’s Speech of June 2017.
