Article preview: Time is running out to top-up your State Pension before a price rise being introduced in April. Paying voluntary National Insurance contributions can be a financially attractive way to boost your income in retirement. However, filling these gaps in your National Insurance contribution record, and receiving a higher State Pension in return, is set to become more expensive from 6th April 2019. If you reach your State Pension age after 5th April 2016, and therefore qualify for the new State Pension system, then you can currently fill any gaps in your National Insurance contribution record at very favourable rates.
There’s still time to top-up your State Pension
This 691 word blog post explains the 5th April 2019 deadline for taking advantage of concessionary rates for filling any gaps in your National Insurance contribution record to potentially boost State Pension income in retirement. Includes an expert comment from Royal London Director of Policy Steve Webb.
