What are they?
Employers will deduct 6% of an employee’s earnings at source and then make a further employer’s contribution of 6.5% which is paid directly to the Social Security Department by the employer. These are referred to as “Class 1 contributions”.
Self-employed and non-employed residents pay contributions calculated at 12.5% of their gross income. Upper and lower earnings limits apply in all cases and non-employed residents may be covered by Contribution Credits depending on individual circumstances.
The level of contribution can vary depending on your personal circumstances and if these change you need to advise Social Security as soon as possible for advice.
