Auto-enrolment has helped workers save £114 billion into pensions

Workers have saved more than £114 billion into their pension pots since pensions automatic enrolment was implemented ten years ago, according to data published by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

The data showed that more than 10.7 million employees were paying into a workplace pension in 2021. The proportion of young people saving into a pension has more than doubled since the introduction of pensions auto-enrolment in 2012, according to the statistics.

The government says it intends to continue work to further boost the amount of people in a workplace pension. It says it will explore how auto-enrolment can 'go even further to help more people save more, sooner' by abolishing the Lower Earnings Limit for pension contributions and reducing the eligible age to 18.

Laura Trott, Minister for Pensions, said:

'Automatic enrolment has completely transformed how people save – with staggering results. In the ten years since its introduction, 10.7 million people have started saving for their pensions with this easy-to-use scheme. We have also seen a huge and much needed increase in women and young people being enrolled into a pension.'
