The Government introduced Automatic Enrolment in 2012. It is when an employer automatically enrols its eligible staff into a workplace pension.
There are many benefits of contributing to a workplace pension – plus your employer and the government contributes (in the form of tax relief). Your employer will let you know if and when you will be automatically enrolled.
For general information about workplace pensions, visit the Workplace Pensions website.
