What do I do if my existing scheme isn’t a qualifying scheme?

If your existing scheme isn’t suitable for auto-enrolment, you’ll need to decide which pension scheme provider(s) are to be used and whether you’ll have the same pension scheme and the same contribution levels for all of your employees.

Once you’ve chosen your provider, such as The People’s Pension, you’ll need to register with them so you’ve everything ready for your staging/duties start date.


You can check if your existing scheme meets the auto-enrolment qualifying criteria at The Pensions Regulator Detailed Guidance no 4
