Every three years you must put certain staff back into a pension scheme. This is called ‘re-enrolment’.
Once you’ve carried out re-enrolment for the first time, your next re-enrolment window will be calculated from your previous re-enrolment date.
Your duties will depend on whether you have staff to put back into your pension scheme or not. Either way, you’ll 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.
1. Choose your re-enrolment date
You must first choose your re-enrolment date from within your six-month re-enrolment window, which starts three months before and ends three months after the third anniversary of your previous re-enrolment date. You can find your dates by using our re-enrolment date tool.
2. Assess your staff
3. Write to staff that you’ve re-enrolled
4. Complete your re-declaration of compliance
You must complete and submit your re-declaration of compliance within five months of the third anniversary of your previous re-enrolment date.
It is your legal duty as the employer to make sure that the re-declaration is completed on time and the information entered is correct. If not, you may be fined.
Once you have completed your re-declaration of compliance you still have ongoing duties towards your staff.
