In order to comply with the Pensions Act 2008, the University has a duty automatically to enrol or re-enrol into a qualifying pension scheme any eligible jobholder who is not already an active member of such a scheme. If this happens, the eligible jobholder has the right to opt out of the scheme. The pension schemes offered by the University meet or exceed the qualifying standards set by the government. An eligible jobholder is an employee or worker who is aged between 22 and the State Pension Age, and who works, or ordinarily works, in the UK and earns above the threshold set by government.
Further information relating to pension policy and procedures, and the different schemes available can be found on the the University's pensions webpages.
