8       statutory notice from employer to person who does not have qualifying earnings




automatic enrolment into a pension scheme

We refer to our letter about automatic enrolment into a pension scheme, in which we wrote that information, as required by the law would be given to you.  This notice contains that information.  The law is mostly in the Pensions Act 2008 and Occupational and Personal Pension Schemes (Automatic Enrolment) Regulations 2010.

1      You may by giving notice to us, require us to make arrangements for the worker to become an active member of such a pension scheme.  Because your earnings are less than £5,824 pa you will not be entitled to our contributions.

2      A written notice from the Employee must be signed by the Employee or, if it is given by means of an electronic communication, must include a statement that the Employee personally submitted the notice.

Enquires about this notice should be sent to:
