SMART Pensions increases your take home pay without changing your pension benefits.
SMART Pensions works as follows:
- your pension contributions will stop;
- the Company will make an equivalent pension contribution on your behalf;
- the Company will offset their contribution by reducing your gross salary by the same amount; and
- as your gross salary reduces so will the National Insurance (NI) you pay, resulting in an increase in your take-home pay. The Company's NI costs are also reduced.
