Contribution Payments

In accordance with the National Housing Trust Act of 1979 (and Act 23 of 2005), one of the major functions of the Trust is to collect and account for the statutory contributions from Contributors.

A “contribution” refers to an amount that is payable to the NHT in accordance with the Act; while a “Contributor” is an employed person (whether employed by an organization or self-employed), or an Employer, or someone who is not liable to pay contributions under the Act but has applied for and has been granted the authorization to make voluntary contributions.  Contributors may or may not be Jamaican citizens, but he/she must be above the age of 18 but not above the age of retirement and earning at least the minimum wage.

Please note that as a contributor you MUST inform us of any change in your employment status as soon as possible.
