Discover more about workplace pensions

A pension is money you’ll use to live on when you retire. Most people get a state pension from the government which covers your basic needs. But it’s also a good idea to try and save some extra money in a pension fund, to give you a decent standard of living.

Your employer has to offer a workplace pension scheme by law. They have to automatically enrol anyone who’s eligible – this is called automatic enrolment.
