Individuals who need to make voluntary payments on their National Insurance (NI) record can now do so fully through the online service.

A government press release confirmed that this can be done on the “Check your State Pension forecast” page or via the HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) app.

Individuals have until 5 April 2025 to make up any gaps in their NI record between 6 April 2006 and 5 April 2018. After 5 April 2025, voluntary contributions can only be paid for the previous six tax years.
