The government’s pensions automatic enrolment policy going to cause controversy . In the past individuals have had to opt into schemes if they wanted to take part now they will be automatically enrolled unless they opt out. Not being proactive will now mean you get a pensiont. Personally I think that is a good thing.

NOW Pensions are just one such provider of pension that employers might sign up to. They have very clear information on their site to explain in more detail what this all means.

So what does auto enrolment mean for you? Will it change things? Are you already opting in to a pension or will this now be  something to consider?

Will you opt out?
