    Not working and now Ni contributions demand letter 26th Sep 16 at 2:13 PM
    Just had a letter saying our records show you have not paid class 2 ni contributions

    They are going to send a debt collection agency.

    Well I've not been working last few years, I did tell them.

    What should I do now?

    Contact them and explain why you haven't paid. They normally send me a letter requesting payment. Have you been receiving these?
    Depending on your income you may not be liable. Check you have enough years for a full pension before choosing not to pay.

    Class 2 NICs are currently flat-rate weekly contributions (2.80 per week in 2015/16). They are liable to be paid for every week or partial week of self-employment in a tax year, if the person's profits for that tax year equal or exceed the Small Profits Threshold (5,965 in 2015/16).11 Dec 2015

    Same thing has just happened to my wife.

    Did you have any notifications of money owed prior to the one threatening to send the debt to a debt collection agency?
