Ann Harris has been appointed by the Minister for Pensions, Richard Harrington, as the new permanent chair of The Pensions Advisory Service.

 Ann will oversee the continued delivery of free, professional and impartial guidance on pensions and support for people if they have a problem or complaint about their workplace or private pension.

 The Pensions Advisory Service (TPAS) delivers its information and guidance service through a variety of channels including telephone, web chat, written and online enquiries, outreach events and on its website. It is also responsible for delivering Pension Wise’s telephone services.

 Minister of State for Pensions, Richard Harrington said: Ann Harris brings a wealth of experience and skills to The Pensions Advisory Service which does excellent work in helping the public with pension inquiries.

 With more than 178,000 customers, and more than 2.7 million visits to its website in the past year, TPAS’ services are very much in demand so it’s vital it attracts a senior leader of such high calibre.

 Ann Harris OBE said: I am delighted with my new appointment as TPAS Chair. This is an exciting time for TPAS, as it prepares for the proposed transition to a new single finance guidance body.

 I am determined that it continues to deliver its core business of giving people professional, independent and impartial help with their private pensions.
