All about auto-enrolment

Before April 2018, millions of workers in the UK will be automatically enrolled into a workplace pension. 

As an employer, auto-enrolment is your responsibility. You'll have a number of new duties to fulfill, which could mean extra costs and new processes for your business.

The good news is - it doesn't need to be difficult.

We've already successfully supported thousands of employers through auto-enrolment and we're now guiding our largest employers through their first cyclical automatic re-enrolment exercise.

We can help make your journey simple whatever stage you're at - whether you're planning for auto-enrolment, cyclical automatic re-enrolment or you're interested in moving to Aegon. And we can help you keep your costs low by using our online solution - SmartEnrol. We're experts in all things auto-enrolment.

The following video is about Our guide to auto-enrolment and has a transcript (see below).
