(h)a statement that the jobholder has a right to opt out of the scheme during the opt out period;

(i)a statement indicating the start and end date of the opt out period applicable to the jobholder, where that information is known to the employer prior to the employer giving the enrolment information to the jobholder;

(j)a statement that the opt out period is the period determined in accordance with regulation 9(2) or (3) where the start and end date of the opt out period applicable to the jobholder are not known to the employer prior to the employer giving the enrolment information to the jobholder;

(k)the source from which the opt out notice may be obtained;

(l)a statement that opting out means that the jobholder will be treated for all purposes as not having become an active member of the scheme on that occasion;

(2) The information given to the jobholder under paragraph (1)(d) includes information on any change in the value of any contributions payable to the scheme by the employer or jobholder in any applicable pay reference period which will occur as a result of any changes to contributions brought about by the transitional periods for money purchase and personal pension schemes under section 29 (transitional periods for money purchase and personal pension schemes).

(3) For the purposes of this regulation “the value” of contributions may be expressed as a fixed amount or a percentage of any qualifying earnings or pensionable pay due to the jobholder in any applicable pay reference period.
