NAPF launches online auto-enrolment guide

The National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF) has launched a free online auto-enrolment guide for employers.

The guide provides information about auto-enrolling staff into a workplace pension. It is broken down into sections, including assessing eligibility, picking a pension scheme, administration and communication.

The guide also includes advice about dealing with opt-outs and postponement.

Joanne Segars, chief executive at the NAPF (pictured), said: “Auto-enrolment is this country’s best chance of getting people into the habit of saving for their retirement.

“It is a very important reform and we have to ensure its success by helping people.

“Our concern is that employers will have to get across many issues that they could find quite complicated and technical, particularly if they are a smaller organisation.

“Our site is designed to help them understand the key facts and issues so that they can feel more confident about pensions.”
