The Pensions Regulator

Can our staff choose to leave the pension scheme if they are put back into one at re- enrolment?

Every three years, you need to assess certain staff including those who previously left (opted out or ceased active membership) your pension scheme, to work out if you need to put them back into your scheme. This is called re-enrolment.

If on your re-enrolment date you put a member of staff back into your pension scheme, they can choose to opt out within one month and they will receive a refund of their contributions.
