Deadline for voluntary National Insurance Contributions extended to April 2025
The UK government is giving people more time to pay National Insurance Contributions towards their State Pension.
Individuals can usually only pay voluntary National Insurance Contributions for the previous 6 tax years. However, taxpayers currently have until 5 April 2025 to fill gaps in their National Insurance record all the way back to April 2006.
Extending the voluntary National Insurance Contributions deadline until 2025 means that people have more time to consider whether voluntary contributions are right for them and ensures no-one need miss out on the possibility of boosting their State Pension entitlements.
The original deadline was extended to 31 July 2023 earlier this year, and tens of thousands of people have already taken the opportunity to pay voluntary contributions to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) since then. The revised deadline is expected to enable tens of thousands more to do the same.
