NIS Donates to St. Ann’s Infant School - Rose Hill St. Patrick

A Computer and printer were donated to the St. Ann’s Infant School, Rose Hill St. Patrick. The presentation was made on January 17th, 2014. The principal and three of the students expressed their appreciation to the NIS on behalf of the school for consenting to their request. The principal stated that their current computer and printer was out of commission for some time, hence the donation was a great need. 

NIS Insurable Earnings Ceiling (Increase)

The National Insurance (Collection of Contribution) Regulation was amended on October 29, 2010 (SRO 23 of 2010) resulting in increases in the ceiling on which National Insurance contributions are payable effective November 1, 2010, January 1, 2012 and January 1, 2014.

Effective January 1, 2014, the ceiling on which NIS contributions are payable has increased from $4,250.00 to $5,000.00 for monthly paid employees and from $990.00 to $1,160.00 for weekly paid employees. 

The contribution rate remains at 9% of total insurable earnings.

It means therefore that an employee who earns $5,000.00 monthly as of January 1, 2014 will now have to contribute $200.00 and the employer $250.00, making the total National Insurance contribution payable $450.00.

We anticipate your usual co-operation as we continue to work towards improving the benefits that we pay to contributors.

Please do not hesitate to call our Public Relations or Customer Service Department should you need any assistance.
