Automatic enrolment

Automatic enrolment is the Government?s new way of encouraging people to save for retirement. The BBC has started enrolling workers into a pension arrangement from 1 May 2013. If you are already a member of a qualifying arrangement like LifePlan you may not be subject to this requirement. For further details on how automatic enrolment affects you please visit the myPension site on Gateway.
