Automatic enrolment: review of earnings threshold

16 October 2014

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) are consulting on a review of the earnings thresholds for automatic enrolment into a workplace pension for April 2015 to March 2016.

The threshold has up to now been equivalent to the Income Tax personal allowance, but this consultation exercise will also consider alternatives for 2015-2016 and future years.

The DWP consultation seeks views on:

· what they should take into account when reviewing the earnings thresholds for April 2015 to March 2016

· the proposed earnings levels for April 2015 to March 2016

and runs until 25 November 2014.
