The guide splits re-enrolment down into four clear sections:

1. Choosing the re-enrolment date

Auto enrolment re-enrolment must be completed within three years of your staging date. From there, you have 6 months to select your re-enrolment date, ranging from three months before the third anniversary of your staging date, to three months after it.

2. Assessing workers

On your chosen re-enrolment date, you’ll need to assess your workforce to work out who needs to be put back into your pension scheme.

3. Communicating with workers

Your workforce then needs to be updated with what’s happening. The Pensions Regulator have template letters of this which are available freely in The Pensions Regulator’s updated guide. This communication needs to be done within six weeks of your re-enrolment date.

4. Completion of the re-declaration of compliance

The same as last time, you’ll need to re-complete a Declaration of Compliance, letting The Pensions Regulator know that your business is compliant with the legislation. This needs to be done within 5 months of your original staging date’s third anniversary.
