Information, booklets, fact sheets and posters to help explain automatic enrolment and workplace pension reforms.

People are living longer lives. The government has introduced a new law designed to help people save more for their retirement. Starting from 2012 employers will automatically enrol their workers into a workplace pension if they meet certain criteria.

The toolkit contains information, booklets, fact sheets and posters to help explain automatic enrolment and workplace pension reforms. It’s intended to help advisers to understand the changes and explain them to their audiences.

You can use the editable Rich Text format versions as the starting point for your own leaflets or newsletters or or you can copy and paste the information into your existing promotional material, for example.

Individuals can find automatic enrolment information at www.gov.uk/workplace-pensions

Automatic enrolment and pensions language guide

We looked at the way we describe automatic enrolment and pensions, as we know complex language can put people off. Our research led to the development of the Automatic enrolment and pensions language guide that we produced with our partners.
