Non Eligible Workers are workers who do not fit the eligibility criteria for auto enrolment. Those who earn over £10,000 but are aged between 16 and 21 or between State Pension age and 74 are Non Eligible Workers, as are those aged between 16 and 74 but who earn between £5,772 and £10,000 per annum.
Although employers are not required to auto enrol these workers, they can opt in to the qualifying workplace pension scheme and employers must make contributions on their behalf if they do so.
Please note that these figures are correct for the 2014/15 tax year but are subject for review by the government every year.
