What is Auto-Enrolment?

Auto-enrolment is a new piece of government legislation that requires all employers in the United Kingdom to automatically enrol eligible employees onto a work based pension scheme.

The legislation is in place to help encourage more employees to start thinking about their future and make the necessary provisions for their retirement.

Who is Eligible?

The Auto-enrolment eligibility criteria is quite straightforward. For someone to be eligible they must:

  • Be aged between 22 and the state pension age.
  • Earn in excess of £10,000.
  • Not already be enrolled on a qualifying scheme.

If you are employing anyone who meets the above criteria you’ll need to ensure that they are enrolled onto a company pension scheme. Should an employee decide that they do not wish to be involved in the scheme they can opt-out after they have been registered.
