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 scheme. These contributions are payable by people over the age of 65 and are based on assessable income.
