My state retirement date is Dec 2028. I have been working and paying tax in Gibraltar for the past 7 years and I understand that I may be able to use time spent abroad to make up the missing years of NI (showing as 6 on Government Gateway). Has anybody done this and if so, can you tell me how I go about it?
