People over 65
The Social Security Department operates a specialist health and Long-term Care scheme which covers residents of Guernsey, Alderney, Herm and Jethou.
If you are over the age of 65 you do not have to pay social insurance contributions but you do have to pay health insurance and long-term care contributions towards the Specialist Health and Long-term Care scheme. These contributions are payable by people over age 65 and are based on assessable income.
Persons who do not make an application to pay on the basis of their actual income will be charged at the maximum weekly contribution rate.
For more information please refer to the leaflet below. If you have recently turned 65 and have not applied to pay income related contributions, please download the CF130 form which is available below. A direct debit form (CF48) is also available should you wish to set one up with regards to payment of your contributions.
