Uk Jersey Social Security Agreement

If you are normally self-employed in a country that has a social security agreement in force with the UK and you are also self-employed in the UK, you may not have to pay a UK NIC. Instead, you can stay in your social security system in your home country. The pension increase cannot be paid if your wife is already receiving a pension or other social security benefit. You will find a list of countries with which the UK has a social security agreement on GOV.UK. The competent authorities and agencies of the Parties shall, within the framework of their respective authorities, support each other in the implementation of this Agreement. This aid shall be free of charge, subject to any derogations to be agreed in an administrative agreement. Migrants sent to the UK from a country with which the UK has a reciprocal social security agreement (sometimes referred to as double contribution agreements or aggregation agreements) may not be required to pay a NCI under the conditions set out in the specific agreement. The countries with which the United Kingdom has such agreements are listed above. They must take into account the terms of the corresponding agreement when determining the rules in force – the relevant agreement is the agreement between the UK and the country to which the worker has previously paid contributions (although the position of three or more countries may be more complex). In general, these agreements provide that the migrant must pay NIC, unless, for migrants covered by mutual agreement, the contributions paid under the agreement to the social security authorities of the United Kingdom and the country of origin are taken into account in determining entitlement to benefits to be paid by each country. The agreement contains detailed rules for different types of benefits and information on whether an employee receives benefits from the UK or their home country. The costs of repatriating a sick person to Jersey (repatriation) are never covered by one of the health agreements.

You still have to pay for it yourself, so check that your insurance covers this. If you currently live outside of Jersey, you should contact the Social Security Office of the country where you worked and ask them to provide us with details of the contributions you have made there. . . .
