My 51 year old son recently enquired about his National Insurance contributions and was advised that sometime in the late 1990/2000 there appeared to be a deficit of approximately 
£250 … my query is ,, I am led to believe that to receive a full pension when reaching that age you must have contributed for 35 years , he will retire hopefully when he is 67 meaning that he will have exceeded the 35 years as stated above , should he pay the shortfall , will he lose out monetary wise if he doesn’t

    It's quite sometime before he claims his state pension. Is he working or claiming any benefits that also include NI credits? If so then there shouldn't be anything to worry about at this stage.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
