The Minister for Social Protection, Heather Humphreys TD, has announced the details of the Final Design principles for the Automatic Enrolment Retirement Savings System for Ireland. Ireland is the only OECD country that doesn’t yet operate an Auto Enrolment or similar system as a means of promoting pension savings. Under Auto Enrolment employees will have access to a workplace pension savings scheme which is co-funded by their employer and the State.
