Have a look at the eligibility roiled here.... https://www.gov.uk/voluntary-national-insurance-contributions/who-can-pay-voluntary-contributions
If you are under a certain age you can only make up the short fall for the last six years. So, if you’ve been gone for more than six years and are under a certain age, every year you put off, you lose the ability to make up past years.
This is probably Brexit-adjacent, I apologise.
Living away / being flakey for years, I've missed a wedge of NI contributions.
I now want to pay the backdated ones, to make sure I get my full pension, whether that's at 67 or whatever the Tories can push through (though I think that'll cause so much turmoil they'll backtrack on it at least partly).
The pound is now 4.43aed to the pound. When I moved here seven years ago it was around 5.5aed.
Should I do it now, or hold on to see if it drops further?
