    Confused re NI contributions

    Confused re NI contributions 8th Mar 18 at 8:52 PM
    I was made redundant on my 60th birthday in 2013. At that time I started to claim an occupational pension and haven't worked since. I am now approaching state pension age (few months time). My NI record shows full years for the years ending 5/04/70 to 5/04/14 (albeit some of my employment was contracted out). The record then shows 5/04/15 and 5/04/16 as "no contributions" and 5/04/17 is shown as a full year. Can anyone tell me why have I been given a full year for 5/04/17 but not for the two previous years when my circumstances were identical? I am loathe to query it as they might decide the year to 5/04/17 was a mistake! Thanks

    This might help. It seem as you was born before 3rd October 1953, you are entitled to have a credit when you are 64 if you are not working or didn't pay enough. The link may explain more about it. https://www.gov.uk/automatic-pension-credits-for-men

    This is a very well hidden credit. HMRC happily accepted 741 from me for this years NI and I only found out about it through others on this forum. A refund was paid but only because I asked for one.
