If the government is paying my employer to pay 80% of my salary, will my employer still be paying pension contributions, or will these be stopped?

No. Your employer is still required to paying pension contributions while receiving government support.

The contribution rate will also remain the same – for example, if your employer usually pays 3% of your earnings, they will continue to pay that amount, and you’ll pay the remaining 5% to make up the total minimum of 8%.

If your earnings are less than normal, the amount of deductions will change accordingly.

NOW: Pensions has a good technical infrastructure combined with a pension product suitable for our team. We couldn’t be happier with NOW: Pensions.
