Occupational and Personal Pension Schemes (Automatic Enrolment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2010 come into force

Implementation date: 1 July 2012

The Regulations (as amended) set out the practical arrangements that an employer must make for a person to become an active member of an automatic enrolment scheme under the Pensions (No.2) Act (Northern Ireland) 2008, including the time limits for employers to achieve active membership. The Regulations also set out the arrangements for postponing automatic enrolment for three months and the arrangements for a person who chooses to opt out of pension saving. The Regulations make corresponding provision to Regulations made in Great Britain. The Regulations can be viewed on the UK legislation website.
