Contracted Out

When a scheme is contracted out members do not build up any entitlement to the State Second Pension. Instead the part of their National Insurance contributions which would usually be paid into the State Second Pension is paid into their workplace pension scheme. Only occupational pension schemes can contract out, and they must meet certain conditions.
