Corporate Pension Schemes

What is auto enrolment?

Auto enrolment is a Government scheme where every (eligible) employee is opted in to a workplace pension scheme to save for their retirement.

How it works

As an employer, you need to contribute a minimum amount to your employees’ auto enrolment pensions.

Your responsibilities:

  • Set up a qualifying auto enrolment scheme
  • Establish which of your employees are eligible
  • Communicate with all employees
  • Choose a pension provider with a default investment fund

You need to consider:

  • How long will the scheme take to set up?
  • How much does the scheme cost me and my employees?
  • Is the scheme easy to use?
  • Is this the best solution for my employees?

Employees must be automatically enrolled if they:

  • Earn more than 10k per year
  • Are aged between 22 and State Pension Age
  • Work in the UK

If employee fall outside these criteria, they can still choose to join the scheme. They may still be eligible for employer contributions into their pension.
