THE MAIN principle of the Social Security Pensions Bill, just published, is that the State pension will consist of two parts, a basic component which will represent pension on a £ for £ basis up to a lower earnings level, and an additional component which, when the scheme matures after 20 years, will provide 25% of earnings in excess of the lower level, up to a maximum of seven times the lower level. An employer who has an occupational pension scheme satisfying various conditions as to benefits provided may contract out of the additional component in the State scheme, and if he does so, his own and his employees' contributions to the State scheme will be reduced.
