National Insurance for migrants

Updated on 12 April 2021


National Insurance contributions in the UK are paid by employees and employers on earnings and count towards certain state benefits. The self-employed contribute by a fixed weekly amount and a percentage of net profits above a certain threshold. Individuals may also make voluntary contributions in order to fill a gap in their contributions record and thus protect their entitlement to certain benefits.
