Workplace Pension Re-enrolment – Don’t Ignore It!

Workplace Pension Re-enrolment

Every three years you must put certain members of staff back into an automatic enrolment pension scheme. This is called ‘re-enrolment’.

Re-enrolment duties must be completed approximately three years after your automatic enrolment staging date.

You will also need to complete a re-declaration of compliance to tell us how you have completed your duties.

Re-enrolment and the re-declaration of compliance are legal duties and if you don’t act you could be fined.

There are 4 key steps to re-enrolment;

  1. Choose a re-enrolment date – You should do this now!
  2. Assess and re-enrol staff – You should do this on your re-enrolment date
  3. Write to staff you have re-enrolled – You must do this within six weeks of your re-enrolment date
  4. Complete your re-declaration of compliance – You must do this within five months of the third anniversary of your staging date

TPR (The Pensions Regulator) have put together this handy, step-by-step guide, which talks you through each of the 4 key steps mentioned above, ensuring you are fully compliant with the pension legislation.
