Automatic Enrolment

Automatic Enrolment was introduced by the Government in October 2012 to encourage people to save for their future by joining a pension scheme. Under Automatic Enrolment, employers will have the responsibility of ensuring that any employees meeting the age and income thresholds (eligible jobholders), are automatically enrolled into a pension scheme. 

The new automatic enrolment duties apply to each employer from its staging date. This phased introduction began with the largest employers in October 2012 and will continue until April 2017, when the smallest employers reach their staging date. The largest NILGOSC employers reach their staging dates in February 2013.
