Consultation on pensions auto-enrolment

Close date: 7 May 2013

The Government consults on proposals to improve the pensions auto-enrolment process. It is considering technical changes to improve the operation of auto-enrolment following practical issues identified during implementation. Proposed changes relate to: pay reference periods for assessing auto-enrolment duties and scheme quality; introducing consistency for contribution payment deadlines for all joiners; jobholders who opted out of pension saving before auto-enrolment; the form and content of the opt-out notice; the joining window; and the test scheme standard for defined-benefit schemes.
