Can a member of staff ask to leave a pension scheme after the opt out window?

A member of staff has the chance to request to leave a pension scheme within one month of being put into one.

If they want to leave the scheme after one month of being put into one, they can cease active membership of the pension scheme. How this is done depends on the scheme you are using and the scheme rules. Whether any contributions made can be refunded will depend on the pension schemes rules and you will need to contact the provider.

The Money and Pensions Service has produced a guide for staff who are thinking of leaving their pension scheme.
