Supporting Employers

Auto Enrolment

Since October 2012, employers must automatically enrol workers into a workplace pension.

As part of the new pension Auto Enrolment legislation a number of new employer duties & responsibilities have been introduced to ensure millions of job holders are given access to a workplace pension, many for the first time.

We remove the administrative burden

Opt Pensions can help employers not only understand their new responsibilities but also ensure that they meet all their auto enrolment legislative requirements by:

  • Providing a pension scheme that suits their and the legislative requirements

  • Automatically re-enrolling employees approximately every 3 years

  • Keeping records for at least 6 year

  • Identifying the correct date they must start auto enrolling their employees (this is known as the ‘Duty Start Date’)

  • Assessing / categorising the workforce

  • Automatically enrolling all eligible workers

  • Providing communication to the workforce about how the auto enrolment legislation affects them

  • Ensuring ongoing contributions (employers and employees) are paid into the scheme
