What is Automatic Enrolment?

The law regarding work Pensions has recently changed and whether you are an employer or employee, it might throw up a number of issues. It means that every employer with at least one member of staff needs to enroll those who are eligible into a workplace pension scheme and contribute towards it.

It is referred to as Automatic Enrolment because it is automatic for employees. It is however not automatic for the employer. The employer must take steps to ensure eligible staff arte enrolled into a Pension Scheme. Even if there is a Pension Scheme in place, a check must be made as to whether it is suitable for Automatic Enrolment. The Employer must complete a Declaration of Compliance.
