National Insurance Contributions

Question for Treasury

UIN HL503, tabled on 16 January 2020

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many (1) part-time, and (2) low paid workers, will no longer be credited with a pensions contribution as a result of the proposed raising of the National Insurance threshold.

Answered on

The Government is committed to delivering on its manifesto commitments and will set out further details in due course.

Increasing the Primary Threshold and Lower Profits Limit only affects the point at which employees and the self-employed start paying Class 1 and Class 4 NICs respectively. These thresholds have no impact on State Pension eligibility.
