About Auto Enrolment  

As people are living longer and likely to enjoy a longer retirement, the UK government introduced Workplace Pension reforms. The recommendations of the Independent Review on Workplace Pension reforms formed part of the Pensions Bill 2011. One of the key changes is Automatic Enrolment.

As a result the UK Government has placed a legal duty on employers to automatically enrol their employees into a pension scheme and advise them that they have done so.

It should be noted that after the introduction of the statutory automatic enrolment provisions, if  a member chooses to opt-out and remains with the same employer, the employer will automatically re-enrol them back into the scheme every three years. However, they can opt-out at any time.
