star this property answer text <p>As part of its 2017 Review the Government committed to build on the consensus on automatic enrolment, which has been a hallmark of the success of the development and operation of the policy.</p><p>Our ambition is to implement the proposals in the Review, including the removal of the lower earnings limit in the mid-2020s – this is subject to discussions with stakeholders on the implementation approach, finding ways to make these changes affordable, and evidence of the impact of the increases in statutory minimum contribution rates from April 2019.</p><p>We recognise that employers, payroll and other delivery partners need time to plan for these changes, so that they can manage costs with certainty. Over the past 12 months Ministers and officials have and continue to engage regularly with employers, pension providers, consumer groups and other delivery partners on a range of matters including these areas and have debated Automatic Enrolment in parliament on several occasions. We will continue to do so to inform future consultation on implementation plans.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In its 2017 Review of Automatic Enrolment, the Government committed to improve retirement saving among the self-employed by testing a number of different approaches aimed at improving savings levels. This recognises that, given the diversity of self-employed people, a single initiative is unlikely to work. Finding effective, durable retirement saving solutions for self-employed individuals is, therefore, a long-term challenge.</p><p>Following extensive stakeholder engagement and preparatory work for trialling activities throughout 2018, the Government’s December 2018 report, ‘Enabling retirement savings for the self-employed: pensions and long-term savings trials’, provided a research and trialling programme, which involves working with partners, to deliver a range of trialling activities from 2019/20.The initial trials focus on testing whether or not certain types of messaging or marketing interventions can increase the propensity of the self-employed to save in a pension. Our objective is that later trials will build on the findings and test the scope to make it easier to prompt and/or facilitate contributions through existing systems which many self-employed people use, such as invoicing services or accounting software.</p><p>The Department is committed to making information from trialling activities publicly available, working with delivery organisations to ensure monitoring and evaluation is robust to inform implementation options and costs.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In its 2017 Review of Automatic Enrolment Review the Government looked at the position of multiple job holders, including those who earn more than the earnings trigger in aggregate, but do not qualify for automatic enrolment by their employer as they do not earn more than this level in any single job.</p><p>Currently multiple job holders will benefit from being enrolled by their employer if they earn above the earnings trigger in any one job. This is currently set at £10,000 for 2019/20. For those in multiple jobs who do not earn above the earnings trigger in any single job, the option remains for them to opt-in to workplace saving if they are in a position to do so, and if they earn above the lower earnings limit they will also have the incentive of getting employer contributions. In some cases, these individuals may also receive tax relief on top of their employer contribution. Some may be enrolled by their employer through contractual enrolment into workplace pension saving.</p><p>The Government is committed to building on the success of automatic enrolment. The 2017 Automatic Enrolment Review sets out our ambition for the mid-2020s, with proposals to improve incentives for low earners in multiple jobs to opt into workplace pension saving by removing the lower earnings limit. This means those individuals would get an employer contribution for every pound earned. However, we will want to fully understand properly the impact of the 2018 and 2019 increases in minimum contribution rates, and work with stakeholders to build the consensus on which the success of automatic enrolment has been based, before committing a timetable for the proposed changes. A significant number of self-employed people choose to opt into Automatic Enrolment themselves.</p>
