What is Auto Enrolment?

The government have introduced new legislation to auto enrol all eligible employees in the UK into qualifying workplace pensions. The reason that they have done this is because as a society, our population is ageing, living longer and the ratio of people working to those retired is slowly decreasing. This means that in the future, there will be less people working to pay taxes and more people retired and needing support. The workplace pensions reform was brought in to ensure that people were better prepared for retirement and would have less of a dependance on the state.

So who does it apply to?

Those employees that need to be auto enrolled into workplace pensions will meet certain criteria:

  • Not already in a qualifying pension scheme.
  • Aged between 22 and state pension age.
  • Earning over £10,000 per annum.
  • Usual place of work is in the UK.

What about people that don’t fall into this criteria?

Legally, you must auto enrol those employees that fall under the aforementioned criteria. As for those employees that don’t fall within this criteria, some may opt-in to auto enrolment should they wish to.
