Automatic Re-enrolment

Automatic Re-enrolment

What is it?

Automatic re-enrolment is the process of putting certain workers back into a pension scheme who are not current members of one. Essentially, your duties for automatic re-enrolment are similar to those at your staging date.

When does it happen?

Automatic re-enrolment occurs approximately three years after your staging date. You can choose the re-enrolment date, providing it falls within a six month window that starts three months before and ends three months after the third anniversary of your staging date.

What does it entail?

  • You must automatically re-enrol all workers who are not current members of a pension scheme, if they opted out or ceased contributions more than a year before your re-enrolment date.
  • Postponement CANNOT be used for re-enrolment.
  • To ensure you meet your duties, you must write to all workers you have automatically re-enrolled within six weeks of your chosen re-enrolment date.
  • You must complete the automatic enrolment re-declaration of compliance within five months of the third anniversary of your staging date. If you do not complete this, the Pensions Regulator may audit you.
