What are Missing National Insurance Years?

Each employer should provide HMRC with the amount of national insurance paid by each employee at the end of each tax year. It has been stated that up to 9 million tax payers have not had their National Insurance payments correctly recorded by HMRC, due to missing information provided by their employer. This means that the missing National Insurance years could affect the amount of state pension that you receive when retiring. If you have not paid National Insurance contributions for a certain number of years, you could end up receiving less of a state pension than you are entitled too.

How do I know if it affects me?

It is common for HMRC to write to people where a gap in National Insurance appears. It is important to carefully read any correspondence received to make sure the information is accurate and compare with your own records. If you have not received any correspondence but would like to check your National Insurance record you can contact HMRC.

What do I do if it is wrong?

HMRC will request any information needed to update your record for example P60 or P45 certificates and will then let you know what will happen next.
