The Pensions (Extension of Automatic Enrolment) Act 2023 gave the Secretary of State the power to:

🟩 reduce the lower age limit for auto-enrolment

🟩 remove the Lower Earnings Limit for qualifying earnings. This would mean auto-enrolment contributions are made from the first pound of earnings.

During the passage of the Act, the Government confirmed its intention to reduce the lower age limit to 18 years old. In response to a written question in October 2023 the Pensions Minister, Laura Trott, said that the Government will consult on the detailed implementation at the earliest opportunity and report to Parliament before using the powers in the Act.”
