Non-enrolled worker growth continues to outpace AE worker increases

Growth in the number of new workers that were not auto-enrolled (AE) into a pension continued to outpace the number of new workers that were auto-enrolled in June, marking the 23rd consecutive month this trend has occurred.

The Pension Regulator's (TPR) latest Automatic enrolment declaration of compliance report showed that the number of auto-enrolled workers had increased by 14,000, whilst the number of non-enrolled workers had grown by 24,000.

Growth in non-enrolled workers has continuously outpaced that of auto-enrolled workers for the past 23 months, with the gap between these groups more than halving as a result, narrowing from 446,000 to 198,000 in the past year alone, from June 2021 to June 2022.

The number of workers who were already active members of a qualifying scheme totalled 11,967,000, while 974,000 were automatically re-enrolled during June.

The update also revealed that the number of employers confirming the completion of their declaration of compliance had risen to 2,063,467, while the total number of eligible employers increased by 48,000 to 33,664,000.

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

TPR said the figure for auto-enrolled 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.
