  • RE: Paid Voluntary NI contributions - How long is updating of the online NI records taking?

    Hello, I paid some voluntary class 3 NI contributions several weeks ago and they aren't showing in my account yet. In April, I will lose the ability to back-pay these years so need to confirm that the payments have been received before then. However, whenever I call the call centre, each time I am on hold for 1hour 15 minutes and then cut off with a message saying the advisors are "unable to take my call". Is there any way to confirm receipt of payment aside from using the call centre? Also, if the payment is not allocated until after the April deadline, is that a problem? I.e. is it still ok as long as the payment was received before the April deadline? Thanks for your help,
