Joining the Fund

Opting In

If, after opting out, you want to rejoin the Fund, you may be able to do so if your employer and the Trustee both give their agreement. You must also be in good health and you may be asked for evidence of this. In any event, the law requires that you are automatically re-enrolled periodically. 

You can obtain more details about this from the Fund Office or by completing the Opting In application in the document library. 

Automatic enrolment 

The Fund is a qualifying pension scheme for the purposes of automatic enrolment.  

Automatic enrolment requires companies in Great Britain and Northern Ireland to automatically enrol (and periodically re-enrol if they have opted out) certain employees into a qualifying workplace pension scheme. The scheme must meet certain minimum legal standards, which the Fund, in fact, exceeds.
