Pension Auto Enrolement
Every employer with a least one member of staff will be required by law to provide a workplace pension in due course, if their employees meet the qualifying criteria.
Over 5 million people are already benefiting from a workplace pension and saving for their retirement.
If you work for a small business, even if it’s just you and your boss, you could benefit from a workplace pension. In the next few years, your employer will have to offer you one by law. And when you pay in, your boss pays in too. Don’t ignore the Workplace Pension and join the many others that are already benefiting.
