Automatic re-enrolment into a workplace pension
Issued: Fri, 22 Apr 2016 15:36:00 BST
Legislation relating to workplace pensions requires that all employers automatically enrol specific groups of their workers into a pension scheme every 3 years.
For the University of Glasgow, the date from which we were required to implement auto enrolment was 1 April 2013 which means that we are required to re-enrol all eligible workers on 1 April 2016.
If you are already a member of one of the University’s pension schemes there will be no change for you as a result of this.
If you are not currently paying into a pension scheme the University is required, by law, to auto enrol you into a workplace pension if you are aged between 22 and State pension age (currently 65) and have earnings above the statutory minimum amount of £833 per month. However if you have voluntarily left one of the University’s pension schemes in the last 12 months we are not required to re-enrol you at this time.
We will contact you individually by the end of April if you are affected by this requirement.
