The Pensions Regulator

As an employer, who do I need to put into a pension scheme?

On your duties start date or a member of staff’s first day of employment you must work out how much each member of staff earns and how old they are. This will identify what you need to do and who you need to put into a pension scheme.

Any staff who are:

  • aged between 22 up to State Pension Age
  • and earn over £10,000 per year, or £833 per month or, £192 per week

...must be put into a pension scheme and you must both pay into it.
