NI contributions after age of 60

Discussion in 'Retirement' started by my2leftfeet, Sep 30, 2010.

  1. I've posted this on the 'Pay & Conditions, Scotland' forum as well, since there is no 'Retirement' forum there.
    As a working female teacher in Scotland who will reach the age of 60 in November,
    I've been told that my state pension begins in June, 2011. I intend to
    keep working till the pensionable age kicks in. Do I still pay NI on my
    earnings until then? Do they stop after that should I continue to work?
    Thanks for any info.

    Yes. You still pay NI in employment, but not out of pension income. NI covers more than just pension contributions, it's also for unemployment and sickness pay.
