Informing Staff About Pensions Auto-enrolment: Template Letters
The Pensions Regulator has published template letters to help employers inform their staff about automatic enrolment into workplace pensions.
From 1 October 2012, employers will be subject to new pensions duties. From that date, larger employers (those employing 120,000 or more) will have to automatically enrol eligible jobholders working for them into a workplace pension scheme that meets certain requirements, and provide a minimum employer contribution. Auto-enrolment is being phased in over a number of years, with additional employers becoming subject to the new duties on more or less a monthly basis.
Employers are required by law to tell all workers (except those aged under 16, or 75 or over) what automatic enrolment into a workplace pension means for them. To help employers with this, the Regulator has developed an online employer letter template tool to provide the letters needed.
More information on pensions auto-enrolment can be found on the Pensions Regulator’s website.
