What must my employer do under the automatic enrolment rules?


After you’ve been enrolled into your employer’s workplace pension scheme, your employer must:

  • pay at least the minimum contributions to the pension scheme on time
  • let you leave the pension scheme (called ‘opting out’) if you ask – and refund money you’ve paid if you opt out within one month
  • let you re-join the scheme at least once a year if you’ve opted out
  • automatically re-enrol you back into the pension scheme at least once every three years if you’ve opted out and you’re still eligible for automatic enrolment.
