Do I still pay National Insurance after I’ve reached State Pension age?

When you reach State Pension age, Employee’s National Insurance (NI) can no longer be taken from your pay by your employer. Once these deductions stop, you’re likely to see your take-home pay increase as a result.

You may still be able to make contributions directly to HMRC if you’d like to do so. We recommend visiting gov.uk for details of voluntary NI contributions.
