Following government legislation, every employee has one calendar month period after being auto enrolled into a pension scheme, where they can choose to opt out. An employee can also opt out outside this period, but may not be eligible for a short service refund.
We’ve created a short video which explains the importance of having a pension. So before you decide to opt out, please take a look at the video, it will help you understand more about the benefits of auto enrolment and how saving a little now can make a difference in the future. Click here to watch the video.
There’s also a member booklet you can read through which provides more information about NOW: Pensions, how your workplace pension works and how we aim to grow your pension pot. Click here to read this.
If you still want to opt out then click on the link in the bullet point below. Remember, you can opt back in at any time to start saving for your future, just speak to your employer or us to do this.

Once you have completed the opt out process, you will receive a confirmation of your request.
Please note, that legislation changed on 1 October 2015 and employees wanting to request a short service refund may no longer be eligible. For more information click here.
