Who is best to carry out the assessment?

It is recommended that assessment is carries out within payroll, this prevents payroll having to wait for information from an external source in order to pay employees and thus removes a lot of tension from the system. It reduces the risk of the employer not paying its employees on time. Please note that NOW: Pensions does not undertake the assessment of employees.

Why do we insist on having a choice of fund manager when the evidence shows there is usually no benefit to be gained…and there is always a negative impact in terms of cost? — Anthony Hilton financial editor of the Evening Standard writing in Pensions World, June 2013
