How does auto-enrolment work?

In simple terms, if you employ at least one person, you have a legal duty to offer a pension scheme
that can be used for automatic enrolment. (The People’s Pension is one of these.)

  1. Certain employees have to be put into that pension scheme automatically – those aged between 22 and state pension age, who work in the UK and earn more than £10,000 a year. They’ll have a pension pot that their employers will need to pay money into.
  2. Other employees have to be told about the pension scheme as well – so that they can join if they’d like to.

So some smaller employers might not need to sign anyone up, but most will. And either way, all employers have to prove to The Pensions Regulator that they’ve complied with the law, so it’s worth looking into it as soon as possible.
