Future Pension Line alternative contact

Hi.  I’ve checked online and can see that I need to add voluntary contributions to maximise my state pension.  I’ve followed the instruction to ring the Future Pensions Service, to establish how much I need to pay, and how - but just get a recorded message saying, essentially, that the service is too busy to talk to anyone, and to look online.  The phone line will reopen after 6th April.  My concern is that I understand there’s an April cut-off for some contributions, and I don’t want to miss it and miss the chance of topping up those years.  Anyone know how else I can get advice on what I need to pay, short of paying an accountant!  Thank you!
