Up until 2017 employers are beginning to enrol workers into pension schemes.
Minimum contribution requirements for employers and workers.
Workers will be able to opt-out, but if they do this, they will be automatically re-enrolled every three years if they still meet the eligibility criteria.
Automatic enrolment is a new legislation introduced by the government to try and help the working population of the UK in providing for their own retirement.
As people are living longer these days the basic State Pension may not be adequate to support them in retirement (although they may also be entitled to an additional State Pension). Further pension savings may therefore be needed.
Saving into a pension gives people the chance to make a real difference to their retirement. In most cases, they will be expected to pay in, but their employer will contribute as well, giving them the opportunity to build up pension savings for their future.
Please note the value of a pension is not guaranteed and can go up and down. You could get back less than you pay in.
