contracted-out employment


contracted-out employment
United Kingdom
Employment which is contracted-out of the state second pension (S2P) (formerly the state earnings-related pension scheme (SERPS)). Members in contracted-out employment forego their S2P or SERPS pensions and instead are provided with minimum benefits under their employer's pension scheme, which may be a contracted-out salary related scheme (COSR scheme) or a contracted-out money purchase scheme (COMP scheme). Both members and employers pay lower national insurance contributions (NICs) if they participate in a contracted-out scheme of either description. National Insurance Services to Pensions Industry (NISPI) is responsible for supervising contracted-out schemes and issues contracting-out certificates.
