Step 4 Write to your care assistant

You must do this within 6 weeks after your staging date.

Within 6 weeks after your staging date, it is your legal duty to write to your personal care assistant, to explain how automatic enrolment applies to them.

Whilst your pension provider may be willing to do this on your behalf, you can also amend our example letter templates below:

I have a personal care assistant who must be put into a pension scheme

You must also include the insert when you send letters to your personal care assistant who must be put into a pension scheme.

Letter templates in other languages

You can find translated versions of our letter templates – including Bulgarian, Polish and Romanian versions – in automatic enrolment letter templates.

I have a personal care assistant who is being postponed

  • There is a separate letter template if you're using postponement.

What's next?

The next step will help you complete your declaration of compliance.
