Irish Life Auto-Enrolment Review

Last week the Government released the ‘Strawman’ proposal, a discussion paper, which sets out how a new auto-enrolment pension scheme might work. It is designed to generate discussion and debate. The details of the auto-enrolment pension scheme are just proposals at this stage. Nothing is set in stone yet. Auto-enrolment is seen by the Government as a vital step towards bridging the ever growing pension gap; it focuses on supporting those without retirement savings to supplement their State pension. Irish Life welcomes the ‘Strawman’ proposal and looks forward to joining the debate.
Did you know? 51% of larger employers with existing pension schemes will need to change their current scheme to be auto-enrolment ready.
Read the Irish Life review which outlines the radical pension changes suggested by the Government.
