Many of you will soon be reaching the end of the first three year cycle for Auto Enrolment Staging, or nearing the date for your first staging (for Academies that commenced after the 1st April 2012), so will be close to the date for your Assessment at Staging to take place.
Staging dates are based on the size of the employer. Therefore for those who have not yet staged, or are unsure of when your staging date will be for Auto Enrolment, you can check this by going onto the pension regulators website (link below) and inputting your PAYE reference number.
For those of you who fall under the Local Authority as the employer and first staged during 2013, please be aware you will be fast approaching your automatic re-enrolment date (Assessment at Staging) and therefore you will need to ensure all administrative duties under staging are followed accordingly.
Strictly Education offer a ‘pension enhancement service’ ,which enables us to take responsibility not only for the production of the relevant reports, but also the other administration tasks that would typically be controlled by the Academy/School Auto Enrolment. This includes the production of the letters to the relevant members of staff and the documenting of staging dates. If this is a service you would be interested in, please contact the team, so we can provide you with a copy of the ‘pension enhancement service’ SLA detailing the additional costs for this service.
