The Pensions Regulator

Can postponement be used at re-enrolment?

Every three years you must put certain staff back into a pension scheme. This is called ‘re-enrolment’.

You can’t use postponement at re-enrolment. You can only postpone automatic enrolment from:

  • your duties start date
  • a staff member’s first day of employment
  • the date a staff member first becomes eligible for automatic enrolment (turns 22 and earns over £192 per week (£833 per month)

Your re-enrolment duties must be carried out approximately three years after your automatic enrolment staging date. Your duties will vary depending on whether you have staff to re-enrol, or whether you have no staff to re-enrol. Either way, you will need to complete a re-declaration of compliance to tell us how you have met your duties.

On your re-enrolment date, you’ll need to assess certain staff to work out if you need to put them back into your pension scheme.
