Opt out form

What you need to know

  • If you stay opted out, your employer will normally put you back into pension saving in around three years.
  • If you change your job, your new employer will normally put you back into pension saving straight away. If you have another job, your other employer might also put you into pension saving, now or in the future. This notice only allows you to opt out of pension saving with the employer you name below. A separate notice must be filled out, if you wish to opt out of any of your other employer’s pension saving.
