Pensions

Carousel is pleased to advise that temporary workers are eligible for auto-enrolment into our Workplace Pension Scheme. The scheme, through NOW:Pensions, has been selected on the advice of a specialist pensions advisor. We believe it will suit the needs of our temps, and perform well with minimal risk involved.

Please note eligibility & enrolment onto the scheme depends on a number of qualifying criteria, so please feel to get in touch with us if you have any queries.

Should you wish to speak to NOW:Pensions directly, their member support number is 0330 400 3334 and Carousels scheme reference is BK7E

Why have I been enrolled in the pension scheme?

Automatic enrolment is a Government initiative to help more people save for later life through a pension scheme at work. It makes it compulsory for employers to automatically enrol their eligible workers into a pension scheme. The employer must also pay money into the scheme.

How do I opt out of the pension scheme?

Following government legislation, every employee has a one calendar month period after being auto-enrolled into a pension scheme, where they can choose to opt out. An employee can also opt out outside this period, but may not be eligible for a short service refund.
