What’s a worker group?

A worker group is a group of employees who have the same contribution level. An employer can set up different worker groups with different rates of pension contributions (subject to minimum requirements for automatic enrolment). You can set up as many worker groups as you like, for example, if you have a group of employees contributing 5% of their qualifying earnings and another group contributing 7% you’ll need two worker groups. Each worker group will have its own unique worker group ID.


The unique worker group ID is needed so that each worker group can be easily identified on the employee data file. As many worker groups can be added to a payroll/admin account as needed.
