Not all your employees will be eligible to join your scheme. Here we'll help you work out who you need to enrol.
At staging you need to assess everyone you pay, regardless of how many hours they work. The three main criteria are:
You need to automatically enrol these employees.
Non-eligible... but if they ask to opt-in you’ll need to enrol them and pay regular contributions.
These employees are entitled to join a pension scheme if they ask you, but you don’t need to contribute into it for them.
So long as the scheme they’re enrolled in meets the auto-enrolment criteria, you won’t need to do anything with these members. If you aren’t sure whether it qualifies, ask your provider.
This is why we believe creating as simple a scheme as possible is important to save you buckets of administration time!
