Help Centre for Employers

When a voluntary scheme reaches its staging date, do we need to auto enrol current scheme members?

All members (including those who may not have chosen to join the voluntary scheme) must be assessed when the company reaches its staging date, unless they are already part of an auto enrolment qualifying pension scheme.

Any members who are assessed as Eligible Jobholders will be automatically enrolled into the scheme, if they are not already in it.
