National Insurance Refund if you have left or leaving the UK

It is very common for people worked in and left the UK to claim UK tax back. The National Insurance paid in the UK is not the same and there are only certain circumstances where a National Insurance refund can be claimed. The main reasons why you may be due a National Insurance refund if you have left the UK are listed below.

National Insurance Refund if you have left the UK ...

  1. If you have been sent to the UK to work by your employer and you leave the UK, it is possible to reclaim any national insurance contributions made for the first 52 weeks of your stay in the UK.
  2. If you are non resident in the UK and pay national insurance contributions it is worth considering whether you may be eligible to receive a National Insurance refund. Certain criteria have to be met and each situation has to be taken on its own merits.
  3. The vast majority of people who have left or are leaving the UK will not usually claim their state pension. It is therefore worth considering transferring the National Insurance contributions into a personal pension which could provide you with more alternatives in the future. In this situation a National Insurance refund can only be given by the way of an investment into a stake holders pension scheme and not in cash.
