Auto Enrolment Pensions

A new law means that every employer must automatically enrol workers into a workplace pension scheme if they:

  1. Are aged between 22 and State Pension age
  2. Earn more than £10,000 a year
  3. Work in the UK

Use the Pensions Regulator staging date calculator to check if the new law applies to you and when you’ll be enrolled. The calculator is for employers but also works for employees.

If you ignore auto enrolment, miss your staging date, don’t pay your contributions, and/or continue to ignore your duties, the Regulator will take stronger action against you – this could include fixed fines of £400, or between £5,000 and £50,000 and/or daily fines of between £50 to £10,000.
