Auto enrolment pensions for employees
In 2012 new rules came into effect which require every employer in the UK to set up a pension scheme and automatically enrol their staff into it.
The government has insisted on a minimum level of contributions that must be paid into these new workplace pensions.
Your employer will have to contribute some of this minimum contribution, and employees will have to make up the rest.
We have provided some information to help you understand these new rules and how they affect you. You should read these carefully, and ask your employer or HR department if you have any questions about your specific scheme.
