The National Pension Scheme Authority is mandated to review the contribution ceiling and pension payments annually and adjust them in line with the change in the National Average Earnings (NAE). This is in accordance with section 35 of the National Pension Scheme Act No 40 of 1996. The National Pension Scheme Authority wishes to advise employers and the public that the National Average Earnings (NAE) have increased from K6 109.00 in 2022 to K6 710.00 in 2023.
Accordingly, the contribution ceiling has increased from K24 436.00 to K26 840.00 effective 1 January 2023. The contribution ceiling is the maximum amount on which the NAPSA contribution can be calculated. Any amount beyond that is not subject to the NAPSA contribution.

• Total contribution = K2 684.00.
