What’s automatic re-enrolment?

Every three years an employer will need to put staff who were eligible jobholders (or ‘type 1’ members) back into their pension scheme if they’ve left it, and if they meet the criteria for being put into a scheme.

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 will on the following re-enrolment date instead.

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