Employer Responsibilities

Auto enrolment is coming and as an employer you’re legally obliged to provide a workplace pension scheme for all eligible employees and to register compliance with the Pension Regulator. Your staging date will depend on how many people you employ - the larger your company, the sooner you’ll have to register.

Your responsibilities include:

  • Providing a pension scheme that meets the legal requirements for auto enrolment
  • Making sure you register the scheme with the Pension Regulator
  • Finding out your staging date (the date at which you must start auto enrolling your employees)
  • Carrying out an assessment of your staff to establish their eligibility to join the scheme
  • Auto enrolling all staff who are eligible to join the scheme
  • Organising membership of the scheme for any staff who want to opt in
  • Processing requests from staff to opt out of the scheme and organising the refund of their contributions
  • Providing your employees with details about how auto enrolment legislation affects them
  • Registering the Declaration of Compliance with the Pensions Regulator
  • Making sure your contributions and those of your employees are paid as an ongoing process
  • Keeping up to date records on scheme members, opt ins, opt outs, new joiners and leavers for at least 6 years
  • Making sure any changes in the circumstances of your staff are managed and updated in your records
  • Ensuring all employees are automatically re-enrolled every 3 years
  • Making sure you and your scheme comply with the Pension Regulator’s legislation as an ongoing process and have a communications audit trail to support this
 

It’s a big undertaking for any employer, but the professional support and advice Help Me Auto Enrol offer can help to make the process smooth, simple and straight forward.
