CWPS Pension Contribution Rates

The CWPS pension rate is based on the average basic construction industry wage. This is the average of the basic Craft and Construction Operative wage rates agreed by the National Joint Industrial Council (NJIC) for the construction industry from time to time. Currently the total contribution rate is 7% of the average basic construction industry wage. The employer contributes 4.2% and the employee contributes 2.8%.

Below are the weekly rates for Pension, Death in Service and Sick Pay contributions.

The pension rates remain unchanged for 2018 Scheme year.
