Hi, Now realise that I have 44 years NI fully paid which I think is more than the max requirement, therefore, shortfall in SP must be due to being contracted out. Is there any way I can get full SP?
I have been told
that I was given 'NI credit years' for 1989-90 until 1997-98 because I
was receiving Child Benefit.
I have been told I
cannot boost my state pension by buying extra pension years because
the gaps are too long ago i.e. 1970s-80s.
I think I am entitled to two 'NI credit years' for
years 1987-88 and 1988-89.
I wasn't employed in those two years, but I was entitled to
Child Benefit for 1987-88 and 1988-89, but I didn’t know I was, and
therefore simply didn’t claim.
I can provide the
evidence that I was entitled to Child Benefit for those years.
Does anyone know who I can ask for help, please?
