Just started receiving new state pension I want to pay VC3 for 23/24. "Your record for this year is not available yet" I calculate I need to pay £824.20 (15.85 x 52) When will my record be updated? If I pay it now will it be recognized in the system?

Hi Dicky,
If you were employed, or claiming benefits during the 2023-2024 tax year, it may take until October 2024 for these details to be recorded onto your National Insurance records.
If you were, this would affect the amount of Voluntary National Insurance contributions that you would be quoted to pay.
If you were self-employed during the 2023-2024 tax year, this would also affect the amount that you would pay.  
Before you pay Voluntary National Insurance contributions for any year, you must contact the Pension Service first, to check that paying for a particular year will increase your pension.
You can contact them on 0800 731 0469, lines are open from 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday.
Thank you.
