Key points

  • Eligible jobholders who have been auto-enrolled and non-eligible jobholders who have opted in are entitled to opt out of their employer's pension scheme.
  • Workers have a one-month period in which to opt out.
  • Employers should be aware of the safeguards in place to prevent, for example, inducement of workers to opt out of a pension into which they have been auto-enrolled.
