Pension credit in Civvy

Discussion in 'Finance & Pensions' started by IsaacHunt, Jun 4, 2009.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Do the years of service count toward civvy pension? i.e If I serve less than the time required for RN pension, do those years count toward state pension given that I will have been paying scandalous tax rates on my earnings?

  2. Yes - all work where you pay National Insurance is counted. It is the amount of NI stamps that determines how much state pension you get.

    If you have missed some stamps, you can buy extra to make up enough to get your full entitled state pension.

    If you're getting within 10 years to pension you should ask for a projection and then you will know if you need to buy any.
  3. Bang on mate, cheers!
  4. The form is BR 19 (For state pension forecast) :wink:
