How to find how many years I've paid

Recommended Posts

I've spent two days trying to get through to the people in the UK to find out my years paid and pension forecast. They won't answer.

 

Is there an easy way to find out online,  without having to set up an account ?

 

Thanks.

I did but they can't confirm my identity,  there is a technical problem, it says.

The slightest mistake in entering details will result in this error I took me a long time to find out I'm 2 years short🤔

I tried again, this time they asked for my passport number. Only 12 years short, which ain't bad, after just paying back 10 years for 1500 pounds. I read today in the newspaper that they are raising the age to 75.

Join the club. I gave up with it. 

 

Will try again on next home visit. But I'll ask offline ....at their head office , armed with a machete and a can of mace. Might work.

The Pension age might increase to 75 in 2035, according to that waste of space Ian Duncan-Smith.

 

I checked my contributions through the UK.gov. site. It does take a bit of time to set up, but it's straightforward once you do. 

 

I couldn't get a new driving licence issued though.

Wondered if they detected I was in Thailand.

 

Anyone got any ideas?

check pension forecast..I did but that was 15 years ago.

I got accurate figures and how much I needed to pay to qualify for full pension.

10 years for 1500 pounds? You got a bargain!

 

I checked mine 2 days ago and they want 2,300 pounds off me to make up the 3 years I'm missing.

I asked about 7 years ago and they said I must pay class 3, but recently told me class 2, so I jumped at the chance, a good investment. This year, I paid 150 pounds.

Class 3 is what they are quoting me. I worked out that it would take me about 3.5 years to get back the extra money paid, still trying to decide if I feel lucky or not.

The idea that the government does not know exactly where you are is long gone. Everything is connected.

 

Unfortunately you are not entitled to a driving licence unless you are  a permanent resident .

You are not supposed to keep one but many do - very long thread I think last year on this with arguments going back and forth quoting various gov. publications.

As to everything being connected someone still has to pull the information together. HMRC have my address in Thailand but this did not stop me from renewing with the DVLA.

I renewed mine online last year. You obviously need to quote a UK address.
