Ways to pay Class 2 contributions

If you're not employed, you can find out different ways to pay your Class 2 Social Security contributions.

About contributions

Direct debit

With direct debit, you pay monthly in arrears, which helps you to spread the cost of your contributions throughout the year, rather than paying quarterly.

If your rate changes

We’ll update your direct debit automatically to help you avoid any overpayments or underpayments. 


We’ll automatically send you any refund you are due at the end of the quarter. 

You might have overpaid if you have:

  • contribution credits
  • Class 1 contribution payments
  • a Short Term Incapacity Allowance claim
  • a pension starting

Pay online

Standing order / telephone and internet banking

Bank: HSBC
Branch: St Helier, Jersey
Account name: SOJ Social Security Department Contributions Income Account
Sort code: 40-25-34
Account number: 12155001

Use your Social Security number as the reference when you make a payment. You can find this on your statement or letter.

If you include an incorrect reference, it might take longer for your payment to be made.

These bank details are only for Social Security contributions payments.
