What is automatic enrolment?

Automatic enrolment is a Government initiative to help more people save for later life through a pension scheme at work. It requires employers to automatically enrol their eligible jobholdersinto a pension scheme and to contribute to it.

If you are a new employee who is eligible to join the LGPS you will be entered into the scheme when you start (if you are under age 75 and have a contract of employment for three months or more) as part of your contract of employment. If you subsequently opt out your employer will be required to re-enrol you into the LGPS approximately every three years on a set re-enrolment date, if you are an eligible jobholder. If you were either a non-eligible jobholder or an entitled worker when you opted out of the LGPS your employer will be required to put you back into the scheme the first time you become an eligible jobholders.
