Some companies and organisations are carrying out their first re-enrolment of employees during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Pensions Regulator (TPR) will write to you with the relevant information explaining how to carry out your re-enrolment duties and complete your re-declaration of compliance. TPR recommends that you assess your staff for re-enrolment on the third anniversary of your staging date or duties start date.
If you have all the correct information handy, it can take as little as 15 minutes to complete the re-declaration. It’s important that you don’t miss the deadline.
Please note, you can’t use postponement at re-enrolment. However, you can choose three months either side of your third-year anniversary date as your re-enrolment date. This may give you flexibility if the pandemic is making it difficult to complete your re-enrolment duties.
For example, if your staging date or duties start date was 1 September 2017, your re-enrolment date will be 1 November 2020. You can choose to start your duties three months before or after 1 November 2020.
You can check TPR’s re-enrolment date tool to see your available dates.
