It is difficult to generalise about something as vast as the NI scheme. However, broadly, it involves payment of contributions in return for benefits.

How much do we all pay each year? To give some idea of the scale of the NI system, the following totals for contributions payable are taken from the Government Actuary’s reports on benefits uprating from April 2012–18:

2017–18

2016–17

2015–16

2014–15

2013–14

2012–13

2011–12
