I’ve been automatically enrolled since my employer’s staging date. Can I now take a contribution holiday?

Yes, you can cease paying contributions to your scheme at any time. This means your employer is no longer obliged to make pension contributions for you either. You’ll automatically be re-enrolled back into the scheme at your employer’s next three yearly re-enrolment date (unless you’ve already opted back in). If you stopped active membership in the 12 months leading up the re-enrolment date, your employer can choose to re-enrol you on the next re-enrolment date three years later.
