I lead the automatic enrolment team at TPR. Our objective is to maximise employer compliance with automatic enrolment duties. Helping employers comply with the law and put staff into a pension means millions of people are now saving for their retirement, who weren’t previously.
We have a population where people are living much longer than they ever were – you can expect to live for 20 years in your retirement on average and that figure is increasing. Automatic enrolment is all about helping people save for their retirement, so that they have a dignified standard of living and that meets their expectations about how they may wish to live for those 20 years.
