End of contracting out 'a trade-off'

The Treasury minister says that thousands of public workers in the Island who face paying more for national insurance will be rewarded by increased state pensions.

Alf Cannan has launched proposals to end the scheme which allows employers and their staff to pay reduced rates for national insurance because they are in occupational pension schemes.

This affects the public sector and private firms.

The government says that in 2019, when the one-tier Manx state pension scheme comes into effect, there will be no reason to contract out.

Those affected by this could face 1.6% more for national insurance.

Mr Cannan is urging them to see that as a 'trade-off' for an increased pension later.
