How does re-enrolment work for my firm during COVID-19?

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.

Delaying re-enrolment duties

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 September 2020. You can  choose to start your duties three  months before or after 1 September 2020.

You can check TPR’s re-enrolment date tool to see your available dates.
