What's in the bulletin?

  • Workplace pension scheme membership has increased to 68% in 2016, from 64% in 2015, driven by increases in membership of occupational defined contribution schemes.
  • In 2016, 88% of employees in the public sector had a workplace pension compared with 60% of private sector employees; this gap has been narrowing since the introduction of automatic enrolment in 2012.
  • In the private sector, employers with fewer than 100 employees saw the largest increase in workplace pension membership, from 25% in 2015 to 35% in 2016; this increase is consistent with employers’ automatic enrolment staging dates.
