National Insurance is a fundamental component of the welfare state. Its payments establish entitlement to certain state benefits, including the State Pension.
NI contributions are paid by employees and employers on earnings, and self-employed people contribute a fixed weekly or monthly amount. They are collected by HMRC via PAYE, alongside income tax and statutory deductions.
About National Insurance
National Insurance is a tax paid by most employees and self-employed people in the UK on their earnings. It is paid automatically by most employers, via the PAYE system, or by individuals through their self-assessment tax return. Although it’s a ‘tax’, it’s also an important social security payment to help pay for state benefits such as the State Pension and statutory sick pay.
There are many different rates of NIC and the type – or ‘class’ – you pay depends on how much you earn and your employment status. For example, Class 1 NICs are paid by employees once you earn over the ‘primary threshold’ which is currently PS242 a week (or PS12,570 a year).
Then there are classes 2 and 4 which are paid by self-employed people depending on their profits. If you have gaps in your NI record because of time out of work to care for children or elderly relatives it’s possible to pay voluntary NI contributions to fill them in and boost your State Pension.
National Insurance has been around since 1911 and its payments help fund new style jobseeker’s allowance, maternity leave, and contribution-based benefits like sickness and paternity leave. If you need help with your NI or want to find out more, see the Government’s אתר ביטוח לאומי
NIC Online is an internet-based software application for processing NIC payments through credit cards and eChecks. It is accessible to NIC customers twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week and allows them to process payments through the web, via IVR (Internet Voice Response) or by calling a dedicated helpline.
Throughout the world, hundreds of health care agencies use NIC to design standards and care plans; nursing education programs structure their curriculums and identify competencies of graduating nurses; authors of major nursing texts discuss treatment techniques; and researchers study the efficacy of nursing treatments. The 565 interventions in NIC (7th edition) are grouped into thirty classes and seven domains for ease of use.
NIC Renewal is the process of renewing your Computerised National Identity Card (CNIC) before it expires. This process typically takes a month or more, depending on the mode of application chosen. However, it is possible to speed up the process by applying for an urgent or executive CNIC renewal service. The fees for each type of service vary, so it is important to consult the relevant information before choosing a service.
