Changes to government gateway for Declaration of Compliance

01 May 2018

From 14 April 2018, The Pensions Regulator stopped using the government gateway as the authentication process for the Declaration of Compliance portal.

Instead, employers and advisers will log in to the portal via TPR’s own system. To ensure that the changes are user-friendly, a series of testing and research has been conducted over the past year.

The key changes to note to the new ‘AE Login’ are:

  • The landing page includes a guidance box ‘We’ve made some changes’ in order to help employers know what they need to

  • Employers will require a passcode, which is easily obtained by creating an account from the main landing page

  • Helpful warning/reminder messages will appear in red if an employer is close to their duties start date, in order to prompt employers to complete their declaration of compliance

  • Those who are completing Declarations of Compliance for multiple employers will be able to view the progress for each on a ‘multi-employer dashboard’. This includes the option to search for employers and sort by declaration deadline

What if a Declaration of Compliance has already been partially completed through government gateway?

All previous progress completed through government gateway will have automatically been saved. Once a new account/passcode is created, an employer will be able to access their partially-completed declaration and carry on from where they left off.
