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
