Pensions – Auto Enrolment legislation

Apr 5th, 2017 | By | Category: Further information

Auto Enrolment legislation means that every employer must automatically enrol workers into a workplace pension scheme if they:

  • are aged between 22 and State Pension age
  • earn more than £10,000 a year (£833.33 per month)
  • ordinarily work in the UK.

UCU has selected the Universities Superannuation Scheme ‘USS’ as its workplace pension scheme for automatic enrolment.

Any worker aged between State Pension age and age 74 may still be able to opt in or join the scheme.
