The Pensions Regulator (TPR) is the public body that protects workplace pensions in the UK. We work with employers and those running pensions so that people can save safely for their retirement.
We aim to be a strong, visible regulator so that we build people’s confidence in pensions.
What we do
We are responsible for:
- making sure employers put their staff into a pension scheme and pay money into it (known as ‘automatic enrolment’)
- protecting people’s savings in workplace pensions
- improving the way that workplace pension schemes are run
- reducing the risk of pension schemes ending up in the Pension Protection Fund (PPF)
- making sure employers balance the needs of their defined benefit pension scheme with growing their business
Who we are
We are a public body sponsored by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). We’re based in Brighton and have around 500 staff.
We work closely with the Financial Conduct Authority who regulate personal pension schemes. We also work closely with other public bodies including:
Our board members oversee what we do and make sure that TPR is well run.
