We posted in October listing some of the services we were expecting to start using GOV.UK Verify between October 2014 and March 2015. This post provides an update on our plans.
Four out of the 6 services we listed as starting to use GOV.UK Verify by December 2014 are now connected to the hub. Three of these are publicly available for people to use:
- PAYE Change or Update Your Company Car Tax (beta)
- HMRC Self-assessment (trial as part of the live service)
- Rural payments (beta)
Later this month, people will start being able to access the redundancy payments service in beta using GOV.UK Verify.
DWP is continuing to develop its change of address service, including using GOV.UK Verify to allow people to access the service. This is not likely to become a public-facing service in its own right; it will be part of a range of other digital services.
DVLA is now expecting to connect its View Driving Licence service to the hub in January 2015 and we expect that people will be able to access the service through GOV.UK Verify from March 2015.
