National Insurance rates will increase in April and will mean millions more paying taxes.
The increase was first announced last year and is designed to help cover social care costs.
But the increase comes at the same time as the cost of living is rising, including food and energy bills.
However, the tax increase will continue, Downing Street confirmed, despite concerns that it could squeeze already tough households further.
National Insurance Rates vary depending on how much you earn.
You pay national insurance when you are working and earning more than £9,568 a year or £184 a week.
Self-employed people earning more than £6,515 are also required to pay national insurance contributions.
This increase will affect the finances of around 25 million Brits, who will have to pay an additional 1.25 percentage points.
This means the rate will increase from 12% on earnings between £184 and £967 a week to 13.5%.
The percentage of earnings on this amount will also increase from 2% to 3.25%.
Since the rate is a percentage of your income, the exact amount more than you would pay in cash will depend on your circumstances.
Currently, someone earning £15,000 a year pays a contribution of £652, while someone else earning an annual salary of £25,000 would be taxed £1,852 a year.
With an income of £15,000, an increase would mean an additional £68 a year, and with an additional £25,000 and £193.
