What is re-enrolment?

Every three years employers must put certain staff back into an approved Auto enrolment pension scheme, even if they have previously opted out. This is called re-enrolment.
Re-Enrolment duties must be carried about approximately 3 years after the automatic enrolment staging date, so it is worth checking your date for re-enrolment and planning ahead.

What Do I need to do?

  • Choose your re-enrolment date from within a six-month window, which starts three months before the third anniversary of your automatic enrolment staging date and ends three months after it.
  • On your chosen re-enrolment date, you’ll need to assess certain staff to work out if you need to put them back into your pension scheme.
  • Write to staff to tell them that you’ve put them back into a pension scheme.
  • Complete your re-declaration of Compliance with The Pension Regulator.

Remember that re-enrolment and re-declaration is a legal duty and failing to act may mean you are fined by the Pension Regulator.
