Voluntary Payroll Deductions

It is important to note Voluntary Deductions through payroll are the responsibility of the payee so it is advisable to check deduction details regularly on payslips.

To commence deductions you must first contact the relevant Provider who will ask you to complete a mandate/authorisation form. Completing the mandate will require personal information such as your payroll number which can be found on your payslip under personnel number.

Providers then issue the mandate to payroll for implementation of new deduction. Please check your payslips to ensure deductions commence and if not contact for further information.

Voluntary deductions may be cancelled on payee request in writing to their respective payrolls via PSSC Helpdesk. Please inform PSSC Helpdesk if you wish to cease deductions

When changing Healthcare provider at the start of the year you must notify your current provider that you wish to cease deductions due to change of provider. You must email Payroll informing them of the change by contacting This instruction must be in writing. Please check with your new provider that the mandate issues to Payroll. All the aforementioned steps has to be followed by the Payee.

Some deductions can be recalculated on your return to payroll to ensure agreed sums are met in full before end of period/scheme in place. In the case of Healthcare deductions payees may wish to make direct payments to providers while on unpaid leave, alternatively recalculations can be done on return to payroll. However it is advisable for payees to contact Payroll to discuss individual deduction options. You can do so by contacting or 076 1002702.

As of 2014 NIS changed the process used to deduct savings. Deductions are now made on a continuous basis so there is no longer any period of the year where you get a break from payment. The maximum annual amount which can be saved is €12000 in the 12 month period. If you intend to save the maximum of €12000 please ensure contributions are based on a 12 month period and not 11 months as per old arrangement. If you wish to alter deductions at any time please contact NIS at 01 705 7200 and also advise payroll by contacting
