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

    Just put the phone down to the HMRC helpline on 0300 200 3500 and must admit to still trying to recover myself after possibly the most efficient, easiest and almost pleasurable experience i have ever had with HMRC and its staff in over 40 years. Yes, it took a couple of minutes talking to the robot, but once through the staff member was not only highly courteous, but very efficient. He found and confirmed the details of the Voluntary NIC payment i had made a week ago, and allocated it to the relevant years. I will look forward to checking my online tax account and State Pension calculation in approx a weeks time after allowing a day more than he suggested would be required. I must admit i am still slightly shocked, but this time at least it is pleasantly so.
