    Military spouses pensions 6th Dec 17 at 3:57 PM
    In 2016 the Government introduced a new system of national insurance (NI) credits to help spouses and civil partners who joined their partners on overseas postings.
    The move means those who come under the new state pension system can claim credits for the periods they spent outside the UK and cover gaps in their NI contributions, which could help to build up their state pension. The credits can be claimed back to 1975, I am a new user so I cant post the link, so if you go to Gov.uk and National Insurance application for service spouse Class 3 credits,
