From October 2015, some organisations will be required to begin the re-enrolment process for all staff not currently in a pension scheme.
What this means for employers
Under automatic enrolment legislation, employers must assess all staff not currently in a pension scheme three years after the employer’s initial staging date, and at three-year intervals following this. This is known as the automatic re-enrolment date and is based on the employer’s original staging date, not the individual's opt out date.
Just as employers have one month from their initial staging date, unless using postponement, to automatically enrol any eligible jobholders they have on that date, they have one month from their re-enrolment date to comply with their re-enrolment duties, unless using postponement.
Employers can choose to defer the automatic re-enrolment date to three months either side of the re-enrolment date, in order to fit in with their business needs.
