When can we use postponement?

You can choose to postpone automatic enrolment for up to three months for some or all of your staff. You must write to your staff to tell them you’re postponing automatic enrolment for them.

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)
