Hi There,

Hopefully this is the right category.

Let's assume that as expat I have now decided to go back home in my EU home country.
Part of the NI is supposed to cover the State Pension which I will be eligible for at the age of 60 or whatever the limit is.

Going back home, is there any chance I can claim that portion of NI ? If so, what's the procedure?
For what I read on HMRC site only Voluntary Class 2 and Class 4 payments can be claimed back. So in theory no chances for Class 1.

Similarly to the above, is there any way to tell HMRC to liaise with the foreign HMRC and make sure contribution to be unified in just one country and avoid the trouble of getting two pensions at the right time?

Thanks
Andrea
