Policy Screening is a routine requirement of amendments to legislation. This Policy Screening form relates to the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme (Amendment) Scheme (Northern Ireland) 2013 which will amend the rules of the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme (Northern Ireland) to reflect terms contained in the Pensions (No.2) Act (Northern Ireland) 2008. This Act requires all Northern Ireland employers to automatically enrol all eligible workers into a qualifying workplace pension scheme and make an employer contribution towards that scheme. The requirement takes effect for the Northern Ireland Civil Service from 1 February 2013.

The Amendment Scheme contains provision to automatically enrol and re-enrol all employees under contract of employment with Northern Ireland Civil Service departments and their agencies, regardless of their age and earnings.
