Automatic Enrolment

What is automatic enrolment?

The Workplace Pension Law has changed. Employers will be required to automatically enroll employees into a qualifying pension scheme. A qualifying pension scheme is a way to save for your retirement, arranged by your employer. Employers must also contribute towards employees retirement savings.

You will be automatically enrolled into a qualifying pension scheme, if you:

  • Work in the UK;
  • Are not currently an active member of a qualifying  workplace pension;
  • Are aged 22 or over;
  • Are under the state retirement age;
  • Earn more than £10,000* a year
