What is auto enrolment?

Auto enrolment is the UK’s new workplace pensions initiative – geared towards motivating the working population into saving towards their retirement.

It is a legal requirement for all employers to provide a pension that meets minimum standards by 2018.

All employees over age 22 and below State Pension Age, who work or ordinarily work in the UK, must be enrolled into a pension scheme as long as they earn over a certain amount per week or month.
