Help Centre for Employees

What is automatic enrolment?

Automatic enrolment, is a piece of legislation introduced by the Government in 2008 to encourage people to save into a pension after it was found that millions of UK citizens will have little to no pension savings when they retire.

In order to reverse this trend and encourage workers to save more, it was made compulsory for all eligible workers to be opted into a workplace pension scheme. Subject to eligibility criteria all employers must offer a pension scheme to their workers without discouraging or influencing them to opt out.
