About

The Pensions Regulator (TPR) is the UK regulator of work-based pension schemes.

We work to ensure that pension schemes are adequately funded and run in the best interests of retirement savers – and that employers meet their obligations by enrolling staff into a pension scheme and making contributions.

A strong, visible regulator helps to build confidence in pensions and saving.

We aim to prevent problems developing in the first place by being clear about TPR’s expectations in our communications to trustees, administrators, employers and other parties. We are relentless in our pursuit of the best outcome possible for retirement savers, but we must also behave fairly and reasonably.

Usually we succeed in achieving the desired outcome by educating and engaging with our audiences. But we will not hesitate to enforce by invoking our regulatory powers where it is the right thing to do.
