Employed earners and their employers pay Class 1 contributions. 

Class 1 contributions are earnings related and are made up of two elements:

  • the employer's contribution (secondary contribution)

Employers deduct the primary contribution from their employees’ wages and pay that together with the secondary contribution to Social Security.
