One of your duties as an employer is to tell employees about automatic enrolment and how it will affect them.
This information, also known as a notice, needs to be sent by post or email and needs to go to all employees, other than those already in a qualifying pension scheme.
We’ve created a template notice of the information an employer needs to send to employees available using our decision tree. It’s just a template, so where an employer chooses to use it, details that are specific to each employer need to be added.
You don’t have to use our template and if you prefer, you can draft your own or create a notice via The Pensions Regulator’s letter template tool.
This can be accessed via The Pensions Regulator.
It’s your responsibility to make sure it includes the correct information and dates, and that the notice is sent to the right people. Our template can be used at the staging date and in the future, e.g. for new employees joining a company.
