Hi Imogen1810 Collins,
This temporary one-year increase will not affect individuals above the State Pension Age from April 2022.
However from April 2023 a new ringfenced Health and Social Care Levy of 1.25% will be introduced.
Workers above State Pension age will need to pay the levy from April 2023 onwards which will be 1.25% on all earnings or profits above the primary threshold.
The levy will also apply to individuals above State Pension age with earnings or profits from self-employment above £9,568. They will only pay the 1.25% levy and will continue to be exempt from paying National Insurance Contributions.
Prepare for the Health and Social Care Levy
