Are you an employer?

Workplace pensions are here. Act now. It's the law.

Even if you employ just one person, you must provide a workplace pension.

The law requires all employers to provide a workplace pension for certain staff. Find out how the change in law will affect you.

  • What is automatic enrolment?

    The law on workplace pensions has changed. Every employer with at least one member of staff now has new duties, including putting those who meet certain criteria into a workplace pension scheme and contributing towards it.

    This is called automatic enrolment. It’s called this because it’s automatic for your staff – they don’t have to do anything to be enrolled into your pension scheme. But it’s not automatic for you. You need to take steps to make sure they’re enrolled.

  • Does the change in law affect me?

    Yes, if you employ at least one member of staff, you’ll need to automatically enrol them into a pension scheme if they meet certain criteria. Get started by reading our essential guide to automatic enrolment.

  • When will the change in law affect me?

    Each employer has a date by which they need to comply with the law. This is called your staging date. Find out yours now with our staging date tool.

  • What do I need to do and by when?

    There are a number of tasks that will need to be completed by your staging date, including assessing your workforce to see who’s eligible, choosing a pension scheme, and communicating to staff. To help you prepare use our automatic enrolment action planner to find out what you need to do and by when.

  • What if I'm not an employer?
