What do I have to do?

The main things you must do are:

  • Provide a qualifying scheme for workers
  • Automatically enrol all eligible jobholders onto the scheme
  • Pay employer contribution for eligible jobholders to the scheme
  • Tell all eligible jobholders that:
    • They have been automatically enrolled and
    • They have the right to opt out if they want to do so
  • Register with The Pensions Regulator and give it details of your qualifying scheme and the number of people that you have automatically enrolled

    There are certain things the employer must not do, both before a person starts working for them and once that person is a member of a pension scheme with that employer. These safeguards came into effect for all employers from July 2012. Our guidance will tell you:
