Hi, yesterday I finally managed to buy in 6 years of VNICs. I paid online from my bank but didn't have an option to ask for a receipt, however I know the money has gone from my account. I can claim my SP from 1st May this year, but know it's very unlikely that my new additional VNICs will show up on the NI record by then. I am wondering whether to delay claiming my pension until they do show up, or whether to claim it anyway asap in the expectation that when the records are updated my weekly pension will increase automatically (probably several months down the line judging by all the delays and backlogs etc) Any comments welcome, thanks.
