Check your National Insurance Contributions (NIC) record

Category:Latest News

Did you know if you are planning to claim the UK state pension, you have until 5 April 2023 to check your National Insurance record and make voluntary contributions?

Normally it is only possible to make voluntary contributions for the past six years, however, until 5 April 2023 there is an extension in place, which allows individuals to fill gaps from 6 April 2006 to the present day.

In general, to qualify for the maximum “new state pension” a person must have 35 qualifying years of NI contributions. For part payment, a person must have contributed for at least 10 years.
