National Insurance and Tax After State Pension Age

National Insurance and Tax After State Pension Age

You do not pay National Insurance after you reach State Pension age - unless you are self-employed and paying Class 4 contributions.
 
You only pay Income Tax if your taxable income - including your private pension and State Pension - is more than your tax-free allowances (the amount of income you’re allowed before you pay tax).
 
You must contact HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) if you think you should be paying tax.
