At Coople, we want what’s best for our workers. That’s why, if you’re eligible for pension, we’ll automatically enrol you with our trusted provider, NEST.

Am I eligible for pension?

You’re eligible to join our workplace pension if:

  • You’re 22 or over, and younger than retirement age.

  • You work in the UK.

  • You earn more than £10,000 a year (that’s £833 per month or £192 a week).

  • You’re not already a member of the pension scheme we provide.

If you don’t meet the above criteria, sadly it means you’re not eligible at this time. You’ll receive a note from NEST explaining exactly why. But, don’t worry, we’ll keep an eye on your profile and, if your situation changes and you become eligible, we’ll instantly let you know!

How do I enroll?

If you're eligible for pension, you’ve got nothing to do! Coople will automatically sign you up with NEST, 12 weeks after your first shift. We’ll also take care of your contributions and deduct them from your salary for you.

How much will I save?

It really depends on how much you earn. We have to calculate contributions based on your annual qualifying earnings so it could be anything between £5,876 and £45,000.

Here’s an outline of how things work:

  • As your legal employer, Coople will pay the employer contributions: 3% of your qualifying earnings per week.

  • You'll pay the member contributions: 5% of your qualifying salary per week.

To see exactly how much is being paid into your pension, simply check your payslip. This handy guide will help you with that.

Can I opt out from the pension scheme?

Yes, you can opt out at any time. All the details are in the information pack.

Any question or issue, just visit the NEST website (they have great FAQs) or contact us via the Help Center.
