Mind the (NIC) gap!

The deadline for filling gaps on your State Pension record via voluntary Class 3 National Insurance, back to 2006/07, was originally 5 April 2023. This was extended in March to 31 July 2023, and has today been extended AGAIN to 5 April 2025. So we now have over another 21 months to consider necessary actions.


Whilst this deadline has been extended, we would recommend you check your existing National Insurance record (that the years you expect to be qualifying, are showing as such), obtain a payment reference number, and make any payments as soon as possible. This will give you time to correct any abnormalities with HMRC well in advance of the deadline.
