DWP assists with auto-enrolment communications

Monday, June 11, 2012

The DWP and the Pensions Regulator have launched a new website containing auto-enrolment communication materials for employers to use.

There are materials in many formats, from newsletters and guides to posters, powerpoint presentations and text alerts.

The materials can be customised by employers to suit their own organisation. In future there will also be a set of letter templates containing the information employers are required to communicate to their workers.
