Start Up contributions will increase from April 2019

Government rules mean we have to increase the minimum (Start Up) contributions that colleagues pay into the Sainsbury's Self-Invested Pension Plan.

From April 2019, the minimum Start Up contribution will be 4% from you and 4% from Sainsbury's.

If you're paying Start Up contributions, you don't need to do anything. The increase will happen automatically and you'll see the new amounts on your payslip from April 2019.

We're updating our online cost calculator, so you can work out what your new contributions will look like.

If you're paying Step Up contributions, then you won't be affected by this change.
