Ask for a National Insurance statement online to check if you have gaps in your National Insurance record.

You’ll need to say which years you want your statement to cover. You can’t request statements for the current or previous tax year.

Get a State Pension statement instead to find out how many qualifying years you have and how much State Pension you’re likely to get.

What your statement covers

  • your National Insurance payments or credits (including whether they’re Class 1, 2 or 3 contributions) for the tax years you asked for
  • if gaps in payments or credits mean some years aren’t ‘qualifying years’ (they don’t count towards your State Pension)
  • if you can pay voluntary contributions to fill gaps and how much they’ll cost

Other ways to apply

You can also call the National Insurance helpline or write to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
