How much you'll likely pay from AprilMSE Tools
My husband and I lived there for 5 years, and alongside his salary he received a "benefits package" which included private health and dental care etc. It's common there for employees to take a job with a lower salary for a better benefits package. This turned out to be a huge plus for us as we went out there as two perfectly fit and healthy fourty-somethings and my husband ended up needing a hip replacement and I needed surgery and reconstruction for a facial cancer whilst we were there. This was all covered by husband's benefits package thank goodness.
I think the meaning of the word "benefits" is what's causing the confusion here.
In answer to the OP if that's the case the "benefits" you may receive from your tax & NI contributions will be free NHS healthcare and NHS dental treatment, alongside the public services already mentioned.
