Handle an opt-in or joining notice for the purposes of pensions auto-enrolment

Key points

  • Under the pensions auto-enrolment provisions, non-eligible jobholders can opt into a qualifying pension scheme and entitled workers can request to join a workplace pension scheme.
  • Eligible jobholders who have previously opted out or ceased membership of their employer's pension scheme may also opt in.
  • When the employer receives an opt-in or joining notice from a worker, it will need to carry out an assessment.
