If you are self-employed and you make Class 2 National Insurance contributions, you may have paid too much if your profits are less than a certain amount (£5,595 in 2012-13), or if you are over state pension age. If you have been employed and self-employed in the same tax year, and making different kinds of National Insurance contributions, you may have overpaid.
If you are self-employed and you make Class 4 National Insurance contributions, you may have overpaid if you are over the state pension age, or if you have paid on earnings that have already had Class 1 NI deducted, or if your profits are over a certain amount (£42,475 in 2012).
Other reasons for overpayment of NI contributions include making voluntary Class 2 or Class 3 contributions when living abroad.
In many cases HMRC will contact you directly to say that you have overpaid Class 1 or Class 2 contributions. However, if you think you have overpaid National Insurance and are due a National Insurance refund you can contact HMRC directly.
