Auto Enrolment

What is automatic enrolment?

In 2018, every employer with at least one member of staff was required to meet new responsibilities, including putting those who met certain criteria into a workplace pension scheme and contributing towards it. This is called automatic enrolment.

It is called automatic enrolment because it is automatic for your staff – they don’t have to do anything to be enrolled into your pension scheme, but it is not automatic for you.

Auto enrolment is regulated by the Pensions Regulator.
