Check your Contribution history!
in our previous post, in order to maximise entitlement to full State Benefits a full contribution record Is required. It is possible to check your National Insurance record online to see:
· what you’ve paid, up to the start of the current tax year (6 April 2018)
· any National Insurance credits you’ve received
· if gaps in contributions or credits mean some years don’t count towards your State Pension (they aren’t ‘qualifying years’)
· if you can pay voluntary contributions to fill any gaps and how much this will cost
