What’s automatic re-enrolment?

Every 3 years, an employer will need to put staff who are eligible jobholders (or ‘type 1’ members) back into their pension scheme if they’ve left it, ceased active membership or are paying below the minimum contribution levels – as long as they meet the criteria.

If a worker has opted out within the 12 months prior to the pension scheme re-enrolment date, they won’t need to be re-enrolled on this occasion, but they’ll need to be on the following re-enrolment date instead.

You might also see the term ‘re-enrolment’ referred to as ‘cyclical’ or ‘triennial’ re-enrolment’.
