Pension Auto-Enrolment

Find out how workplace pension auto-enrolment affects you and how one of TPT Retirement Solution's Defined Contribution pension schemes can help.

Auto-Enrolment contributions are changing...

The minimum amount employers and employees must pay into their Defined Contribution (DC) schemes is increasing. The total minimum contribution as of 6 April 2018 is 5%, with the employer contributing at least 2%. A further increase on 6 April 2019 will take the total minimum contribution up to 8%. 

All employers with staff in an auto-enrolment pension scheme, must make sure that they are paying at least the minimum amounts into their pension scheme, whether they are using a pre-existing scheme or one that they set up for auto-enrolment. The document below provides more information on current and future contribution rates and how they will impact your workplace pension scheme.

What is Workplace Pension Auto-Enrolment?

To help people save for retirement, employers have a legal requirement to auto-enrol their eligible employees into a workplace pension scheme.

Introduced by the Government in 2012, the legislation was first rolled out to large employers, followed by medium-sized, and then small employers. All new and existing employers should now auto-enrol their eligible employees unless they choose to opt out.

The contributions employers and employees must make each month has been increasing in phases, with the next increase scheduled for 6 April 2019.

Employers must auto-enrol employees who:

  • are aged between 22 and state pension age;
  • earn more than £10k a year (2017/18); and
  • ordinarily work in the UK.
