I have just completed my cyclical pension re-enrollment. I was expecting one employee to be re-enrolled who has previously opted out of pension contributions. However he wasn't re-enrolled during the assessment and I'm trying to work out why.
He is just under state pension age and opted out over 12 months ago therefore I expected him to be re-enrolled, however he wasn't. Is it because he is currently receiving SSP and has done so for the last 10 weeks as he is recovering from a hip replacement therefore he doesn't currently have qualifying earnings, although his pay to date prior to starting SSP was approximately £19,000.00. As of yet he is not expected back to work anytime soon and will continue to receive SSP.
