National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage rates

April 5, 2019

National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage rates

 

The hourly rate for the minimum wage depends on your age and whether you’re an apprentice.

 

You must be at least:

 

  • school leaving age to get the National Minimum Wage

  • aged 25 to get the National Living Wage - the minimum wage will still apply for workers aged 24 and under

 

 

Current rates

 

These rates are for the National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage. The rates change every April.

 

 

Apprentices

 

Apprentices are entitled to the apprentice rate if they're either:

 

  • aged under 19

  • aged 19 or over and in the first year of their apprenticeship

 

Example 

An apprentice aged 22 in the first year of their apprenticeship is entitled to a minimum hourly rate of £3.90.

 

 

Apprentices are entitled to the minimum wage for their age if they both:

 

  • are aged 19 or over

  • have completed the first year of their apprenticeship

 

Example

An apprentice aged 22 who has completed the first year of their apprenticeship is entitled to a minimum hourly rate of £7.70.

 

Previous rates

 

The following rates were for the National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage from April 2016.
