5 TEN STEPS TO COMPULSION STEP TWO  HAVE YOU HAD YOUR LETTER YET??!!  In less than 2 years, all employers of 100+ staff must be auto-enrolling 2

6 TEN STEPS TO COMPULSION STEP THREE  Does your organisation employ staff who are aged 22 or over, under State Pension Age, and earning more than £8,105 per annum?  If yes, they are “Eligible Jobholders”. 3

7 TEN STEPS TO COMPULSION STEP FOUR  Does your organisation / client employ staff who are aged between 16 and 21, or over State Pension Age?  If yes, are they “Non- eligible jobholders” or “Entitled Workers”? 4

8 TEN STEPS TO COMPULSION STEP FIVE  It does not matter if staff are employed on full time, part time, or fixed term contracts.  If they meet the above eligibility criteria they must be auto-enrolled. 5

9 TEN STEPS TO COMPULSION STEP SIX  You will need to auto- enrol staff in to either your own QWPS or into NEST.  What are QWPS and NEST?  Are you looking to keep costs to a minimum?  Basic Pay or “Banded earnings” – what structure suits your organisation? 6

10 TEN STEPS TO COMPULSION STEP SEVEN  Staff will be auto- enrolled into your chosen pension scheme without having to complete any sort of application or paperwork.  Only once auto- enrolled, individual employees can opt out. 7

11 TEN STEPS TO COMPULSION STEP EIGHT  Has your organisation considered the additional costs to the business? Both in time and money.  Can your systems cope with the constant assessment and monitoring of staff that auto-enrolment requires? 8

12 TEN STEPS TO COMPULSION STEP NINE  Communications to staff will be absolutely critical – will you be able to fully explain and deliver to staff?  Great care is necessary with regard to non-compliance and /or regulatory breaches. 9

13 TEN STEPS TO COMPULSION STEP TEN  Has your organisation discussed readiness for compulsion with pension providers, payroll providers and legal advisers?  We strongly recommend the construction of a comprehensive project plan.  The Pensions Regulator will be monitoring auto- enrolment very closely. 10
