The Pensions Regulator

I have furloughed my staff, do I still need to pay contributions?

If you are making a claim under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, your normal payroll process still runs as usual.

Deductions such as tax and national insurance contributions as well as pension contributions will continue to be made from your furloughed member of staff’s pay and paid as usual. You and your furloughed staff’s pension obligations remain unchanged, you will still upload the contribution schedules to your pension provider, and pay the staff and employer pension contributions over to the pension scheme.
