Any idea how long it should take for my NI credits to appear in my online account? For Tax Year 2020/21 it's still showing as "Not Yet Available". Thoughts welcome.

I had a similar problem, waiting 7 months for a voluntary contribution to show up. When I eventually got through on the phone, it had been allocated to the wrong year.It then took a further 6 weeks to be re-allocated.

Thanks. Getting through on the phone sounds like my next challenge! No luck in last 3 weeks of trying...

Hi Blobcore,

Some NI credits are awarded immediately, others at the end of the tax year.

As the credit you are querying is regarding the 20/21 tax year I would recommend contacting the NI helpline on 0300 200 3500.

Thank you.

Thanks admin. In the last tax year I was partly PAYE class 1 contributions and partly Self Employed class 2 and 4. As I still have a balancing payment to make in Jan 22 for this could that explain the delay in update? Many thanks.

Hi Blobcore

As previously suggested, please contact the helpline for confirmation.
