Every three years you must put certain staff back into a pension scheme. This is called ‘re-enrolment’.

Your re-enrolment duties must be carried out approximately three years after your automatic enrolment staging date. Your duties will vary depending on whether you identify that you have staff to re-enrol, or whether you have no staff to re-enrol. Either way, you will need to complete a re-declaration of compliance to tell us how you have met your duties.

Remember, re-enrolment and re-declaration is your legal duty and if you don't act you could be fined.

2. Assess your staff

On your chosen re-enrolment date, you’ll need to assess certain staff to work out if you need to put them back into your pension scheme.

Do this on your re-enrolment date.
3. Write to staff that you have re-enrolled

Use our example letter template to write to staff to tell them that you’ve put them back into a pension scheme.

Do this within 6 weeks of your re-enrolment date.
