Key and National Insurance Contributions

Discussion in 'Supply teaching' started by Hazel Catkins, Apr 4, 2011.

  1. I have been working as a supply teacher for Capita and, as a result, have been employed by an umbrella company called ‘Key’. I understand that I may be paying class 1 National Insurance contributions, although I am not certain because the person I spoke to at Key seemed vague. However, I am concerned that I could pay less National Insurance through this organisation, which means I may not be entitled to certain rights such as my state pension and contributions based Jobseekers Allowance.

    I'm certainly hoping that's going to be the case, because like many others too many years of unreliable supply had resulted in a very poor NI record!
     
  3. Thank you for the positive answer jubilee, but what constitutes sufficient earnings?
     
  4. No, it's not teaching related.

    However, if I did need to step back on to teaching and pimp myself out, I would most certainly, sure as hell avoid IR35 as it is totally doable
