Some companies, especially larger ones, have offered their staff a pension scheme which employees and indeed the employer pay into. In 2010 the Government announced legislation that would mean all employers had to “auto enrol” staff into a scheme as long as the staff member met certain criteria. This became known as Auto Enrolment and the first companies began enrolling their staff in 2012. Initially this only affected larger companies but as time passes smaller firms are enrolling staff and in 2015 companies with 30 or less staff will commence their schemes. By the 1st february 2018 all employers will have to make a scheme available to their staff.
More information regarding Auto Enrolment is available via The Pensions Regulator.
