Consultation on technical changes to auto-enrolment pension schemes

Close date: 9 January 2015

The Government consults on draft regulations 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: introducing an alternative quality requirement to replace the test scheme standard for defined-benefit schemes; simplifying the requirement on employers regarding the provision of information about auto-enrolment to employees; and creating exceptions to employer duties so that an employer does not have to enrol an employee into a workplace pension in certain circumstances.
