National Insurance contribution for State Pension ?
Hi. I am 35 yr old diagnoised and treated for a rare type of Cancer a year ago. I have recently started claiming basic PIP. I have recently also taken up part -time employment locally that pays some of my bills. My question is how much and if I should contribute to NI for last one year when I was unemployed. I have 3 years of NI contribution historically but last year as I had no earnings I did not pay NI. To qualify for new state pension in future do I need to pay £14.65 a week as voluntary class 3 contribution ? that is a ridiculous amount for the year. Any advice will be highely appreciated. Thank you.
