The United Kingdom has agreements on national insurance and entitlement to benefits with the following non-EEA countries: there is a list of countries with which the United Kingdom has social security agreements in GOV.UK. You can contact the International Pension Centre for more information on the situation when you enter such a country. For migrants subject to reciprocal agreement, contributions to social security authorities in the United Kingdom and the country of origin under the agreement are counted when determining the right to benefits payable by each country. The agreement contains detailed rules for different types of benefits and information on whether a worker is receiving benefits from the UK or his country of origin. Migrants who are sent to the UK from a country with which the UK has a mutual social security agreement (sometimes referred to as a “double convention” or “totalisation agreement”) in the UK may not be required to pay NIC in accordance with the terms of the specific agreement. The countries with which the United Kingdom has such agreements are listed above. New Zealand and the United Kingdom have reached an agreement on social security. The agreement includes the following benefits and pensions: “competent authority”: the authority responsible for social security schemes in all or part of the territory of each party; in other words, with regard to the United Kingdom, the Secretary of State for Social Services, the Department of Health and Social Services for Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man Board of Social Security, as the case, and, in the case of New Zealand, the Social Security Commission; If you are normally self-employed in a country with a valid social security contract with the UK and you will also be self-employed in the UK, you may not have to pay UK NIC. Instead, you can stay in your home country. The agreement with New Zealand deals with the UK`s national legislation on the consideration of social security contributions. The Convention only applies to any legislation relating to a branch of social security that is not covered by the legislation covered by paragraph 1 of this article if both parties reach an agreement to that effect. They must take into account the terms of the corresponding agreement to define the rules in force – the relevant agreement is the agreement between the UNITED Kingdom and the country in which the worker has contributed (although the situation may be more complex in three or more countries).
In general, these agreements provide that the migrant must pay the NIC, unless Chile, Japan and South Korea assume only the obligation to contribute and do not have benefits.
