“Re-enrolment” means putting certain staff back into a pension scheme. Here is our pensions re-enrolment overview, and this must be done 3 years after your automatic enrolment staging date.

Step 1 – Choose your re-enrolment date
You have a 6-month window in which to set this, starting from 3 months before the 3rd anniversary of your automatic enrolment staging date and ending 3 months after it.
Step 2 – Assess certain staff to decide if you are going to put them back in your pension scheme
Step 3 – Notify your re-enrolled staff in writing
You must do this within 6 weeks of your re-enrolment date.
