Automatic Enrolment


Employers now have the duty to enrol their workforce automatically into a workplace pension scheme—whilst they must deduct at least 1% of the earnings of their employees to contribute to their personal pension schemes, employers must also contribute a fixed rate themselves. Although this process is automatic for anyone over the age of 22 earning more than £10,000 per year, once enrolled employees can manually opt out of their workplace pension scheme should they choose.
