The pension holiday ended on September 30th. What's next?

The pension holiday ended on September 30, 2022. In this regard, the Cayman Islands Government has decided that there will not be an extension to this timeframe. Employees and companies should plan for the resumption of these payments starting with October earnings.





Additionally, the year’s maximum pensionable earnings for the remaining three months of the year (October to December) have also been addressed by the release of the NATIONAL PENSIONS (MAXIMUM PENSIONABLE EARNINGS) ORDER, 2022. The annual contribution cap for 2022 has been prorated to KYD 21,750.

Remitting Contributions

Each participating employer must remit monthly contributions—mandatory contributions, AVCs, and the housing repayment of an additional 1%—to our Administrator’s Agent (Saxon Administration, Ltd.) starting with October earnings. It is up to the employer to:

  • Calculate employer and member contributions.

  • Deduct member contributions from the payment.

  • Complete the Contributions Input Form: https://www.chamberpension.ky/employer-forms and submit it via email to admin@pensions.ky

  • Keep detailed records, as required by law.

  • Contributions can be made via cheque, direct deposit, or wire transfer. https://www.chamberpension.ky/employer-contribution-records

Contribution Deadline and Currency

  • Contributions should be made monthly and sent to the Chamber Pension Plan within 15 days of the month's end, e.g. October contributions are due by November 15th.

  • If an employer is unable to make payment by the deadline date, they must notify the plan at admin@pensions.ky

  • Contributions can be paid in either Cayman Islands (KYD) or US dollars. Contributions received in US dollars will be converted to KYD at a fixed rate of $0.83333.
