probably been asked (and answered) several times already, although could not find anything when I searched on certain keywords that might be applicable :(

I have recently started a new job (after being unemployed for several years due to an accident), and have just received my first payslip, however, I am being told that £6136 is deducted from the gross salary before any pension contribution is calculated - is this correct?

If yes, then what is the £6136 for / based on (surely it is not what the government believes you can survive on)?

While 5% is calculated on the remaining figure, it is not 5% of the gross salary which it should be, or am I looking at this completely wrong?


Sometimes I wonder...

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
