Non-enrolled worker growth continues to outpace AE growth

Growth in the number of non-enrolled workers has continued to outpace progress amongst auto-enrolled (AE) workers during April 2021, with figures from The Pension Regulator (TPR) confirming an increase of 27,000 in non-enrolled workers.

In contrast, the number of AE workers grew by around 16,000, although this represents an increase on the previous month, when the number of enrolled employees increased by around 14,000.

Non-enrolled workers growth, meanwhile, has slowed pace, with an increase of 31,000 previously recorded in March, more than double the growth seen amongst AE workers, and an increase of 49,000 in February 2021.

The past month also saw the total number of eligible employers increase by 50,000 to 32,753,000, and the number of employers confirming the completion of their declaration of compliance increase by 13,516 to 1,839,131.

The figures for TPR's 's Automatic enrolment 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.
