The law on workplace pensions requires that, if you are an eligible member of staff or casual worker, QMUL must enrol you into one of its supported pension schemes – this is called automatic enrolment because it is automatic for staff – you do not have to take any action to be enrolled into a pension scheme. Auto-enrolment is intended to encourage you to save into a pension scheme to provide for your retirement.

  • If you are already in one of pensions schemes (USS, SAUL or NHS) your pension scheme membership will not be affected.
  • If you have opted out of the pension scheme already, you may be auto-enrolled at the three year anniversary as required by UK law.
