Topping up your State Pension

Until next Wednesday (5 April 2017), people who have some entitlement to a State Pension and have reached their state pension age before 6 April 2016, will have the opportunity to pay voluntary Class 3A National Insurance contributions to purchase additional State Pension.

If you are eligible, you should check to see if it is worth doing. The steps that you should take are:

  • Get a State pension forecast or check to see if you are receiving the full State pension
  • See if you are eligible to make Class 3 Voluntary contributions
  • If not, work out the cost of making Class 3A contributions to top up your State pension
