I'm not in Pace

Automatic enrolment - joining Pace DC

All employers must put their eligible employees into a workplace pension under Government rules. This is known as automatic enrolment. 

The Co-op will automatically enrol you into Pace DC, within 3 months of joining, if:

  • You’re not already paying contributions into Pace DC
  • You earn more than £769 in a four-weekly pay period (£10,000 a year) in 2022/2023
  • You’re aged 22 or above
  • You’re under State Pension Age.

If you’re automatically enrolled into Pace DC today, you’ll contribute 3% of your Pay and the Co-op will contribute 5%.

You can read more about automatic enrolment in the Pace DC pension guide. For more general information about automatic enrolment and workplace pensions, go to the Government website.
