The communications cover four areas of the auto enrolment process.
|Assessment for enrolment||This tells employees whether they’re eligible to be enrolled in the Scheme, sets out the criteria for enrolment, explains how workplace pensions work and what their options are.|
|Enrolment notice||This tells employees if they’ve been enrolled into the Scheme and the date they were enrolled. It also explains how contributions are deducted, how tax relief is deducted, how they can opt out, and how to manage their pension online.|
|Postponement notice||This lets your employees know if you’ve decided to postpone their assessment for eligibility to be enrolled in the Scheme (your deferral date) and gives them the new date for assessment. It also sets out the criteria for enrolment, explains how workplace pensions work and what their options are until they’re formally assessed.|
|Opt-in or opt-out confirmation||This lets employees know when they’ve successfully opted into or out of the Scheme.|
Which communications we send to your employees will depend on the information you upload in your pension data file. For example, we won’t send postponement notices if you’re not using postponement.
