- Processing eligible employees who have
decided to optout of the scheme.
- Carrying out re-enrolment duties every three years, whereby members of staff who have opted out of the pension scheme or ceased paying contributions
are assessedand re-enrolled in the scheme if eligible. And completing an online re-declaration of compliance.

As part of our service, we will produce an annual governance report which includes a review of compliance – making sure your scheme has met the rules and suggesting improvements where necessary – as well as suitability, administration and employee engagement.
