How should I prepare?
Employers have reported needing as much as a year to plan properly for their staging date, so it�'s important to start preparing well in advance.The Pensions Regulator has a tool on their site to help you make plans. It� will help you get a better idea of what you should do and by when as your staging date approaches. If you already run a pension scheme, you should check with your provider to see whether it�'s eligible for auto-enrolment.Whichever provider you choose you must make sure they have the following staff information well in advance of your staging date:
- Dates of birth
- National Insurance Numbers
- Latest contact details
- Personal Address details
Finally, you must nominate a contact who will be responsible for your company�s auto-enrolment, and will receive all communications from the Pensions Regulator.
Please note your obligations now start the day your first employee starts work.
