4749. Why Opt In is not working?
 

The reason why some of the OPT IN employees pension is not calculating is because the Opt In employees can only start contributions in the following pay period.

  • If the employee is paid weekly the Opt In will start in the next weekly pay run.
  • If the employee is paid monthly the employee will only start contributing in the next monthly pay run.

TPR Guidance has clearly explained when Opt In contributions take place.

  • The confusing TPR Rules state: For Entitled Workers the Opt In will take effect in the same pay period, but for Eligible and Non-Eligible job holders Opt In will take effect in the following pay period.
The TPR Guidance is shown in the link below:-
