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

    I paid my missing contributions in March and was advised to call after 10 days to get the payment allocated. I rang after 10 days as requested and was told I would receive a letter detailing the new payment and the backdated amount. I heard nothing. I rang again in early May and was told it it would be 3 to 6 months before I would receive anything and if I wasn’t happy to complain to my MP and also this is Martin Lewis’s fault. I used my savings to pay this amount and now the government is holding my money and no doubt making interest on all these additional payments they have received whereas I have lost my interest on the money on withdrawal from savings . You mention 8 weeks in these post replies and that definitely is not my understanding
