You assume they do? Not in any accountable way, they don't. All the NI contributions just get lumped into the overall tax fund, so there's no actual link between premiums and benefits.


National Insurance goes to pay, AFAIK, for the NHS, employement/sickness benefits, mat pay and state pension. It's ring fenced but can be borrowed from I think.

So yes, a link. Otherwise why have a link between NI contributions and amount of state pension you're eligible for?
