HSC Autoenrollment

What is Auto Enrolment?

The Government has introduced a new law that requires all employers to automatically enrol certain workers. Due to a change in law the Government requires all employees who are aged 22 or over, earn over £8,105 per year (2012-13) and are under State Pension age to be enrolled into a qualifying workplace pension scheme, if they are not already in one.

The aim is to make it easier for workers to save for their retirement and for more people to have another income, on top of the State Pension, when they come to retire.

Employers will also have a duty to automatically re-enrol workers into a qualifying pension scheme every three years.
