I paid in over £2057.40 to HMRC to top up my NI Contributions record to reach the maximum state pension by faster payment on 28th February 2022. I used the 18 digit reference provided by HMRC to enable them to credit this payment to my account.
I have just checked online and this has not credited to my account (yet) . Please can you let me know what the current waiting time is for allocating this payment to account? How can I confirm that it has been received safely and if there is anything I can do to help speed up this process?
