The appropriate option will be displayed to you in your profile depending on your circumstances.
If you have been postponed, or you have been assessed but you were not eligible, you can choose to opt in to the scheme and contribute towards your pension.
If you have been assessed as eligible and have therefore been automatically enrolled into the scheme but choose not to contribute towards your pension, you can choose to opt out. You can do this within 30 days from the date you joined the scheme.
