Changes to National Insurance Contributions

One of the consquences of the introduction of a single tier state pension is that the ability for defined benefit pension schemes to contract-out will cease. This means that from April 2016 any member of one of the HE sectors' defined benefit schemes (USS, SAUL, TPS, LGPS and many SATs) will pay higher National Insurance (NI) contributions. Employers will also pay higher NI contributions.

UCEA has produced the following communication materials to assist HEIs in explaining the NI changes to their employees.
