Non-enrolled worker growth again outpaces AE growth

Growth in the number of non-enrolled workers continued to outpace growth of the automatically enrolled (AE) in July, rising by 31,000 to 10,092,000, according to The Pensions Regulator (TPR).

Data from the regulator also that the number of AE employees increased by 19,000 to 10,526,000 in July, down from 20,000 in June, meaning that the gap in growth between the two groups remained at 12,000 for the second successive month.

It has been a full year since AE workers had the higher monthly increase of the two groups.

July also saw the number of eligible employers increase, with the figure rising by 69,000 to 32,917,000, representing accelerated growth from the 63,000 jump seen the month before.

Meanwhile, the number of employers confirming the completion of their declaration of compliance rose by 16,511 to 1,885,738.

The figures for TPR's 's AE declaration of compliance are compiled from information submitted by employers when they complete their declaration of compliance with AE.

TPR said the figure for AE jobholders was likely to be higher than that shown in the report, as some employers will have reached their duties start date and automatically enrolled their eligible employees without having completed their declaration.
