Opting out

You can find out even more about the benefits of being enrolled into a workplace pension scheme, why you’ve been enrolled and how to opt out through our dedicated opt out webpage.

This is when you ask to leave your workplace pension scheme within the 1 calendar month opt-out period. You’ll be entitled to a refund of what you contributed to your workplace pension scheme.

You can still leave the scheme after your opt-out period. This is known as “ceasing active membership”—you won’t be entitled to a refund and the contributions you’ve made will remain invested in your pension pot.
