After automatic enrolment, employees that don’t want to remain in your workplace pension scheme can opt out. For example, if they can’t afford to pay contributions for a certain period of time, you have to allow them to opt out.
If they opt out within 1 month of the date they were auto-enrolled, you will have to refund any money they paid into their pension pot. If they opt out after 1 month, there’s no obligation for you to refund their contributions.
For staff to leave the scheme, they’ll have to complete an opt-out notice from the pension provider and give this to you.
