    HMRC has extended the voluntary national insurance contributions (NICs) deadline until 2025.

    Extending the voluntary NICs deadline until 2025 will give people more time to consider whether paying voluntary contributions is right for them, and also ensures individuals do not miss out on the possibility of boosting their State Pension entitlements.

    The original deadline was extended to 31 July 2023 earlier this year. HMRC said the new extension allows thousands more people to add extra years to their national insurance record.

    HMRC stated that all relevant voluntary NIC payments will be accepted at the rates applicable in 2022/2023 until 5 April 2025.

    Victoria Atkins, Financial Secretary to the Treasury, said:

    ‘People who have worked hard all their lives deserve to receive their State Pension entitlement, and filling gaps in national insurance records can make a real difference.

    ‘With the deadline extended, there is no immediate rush for people to complete gaps in their record and they will have more time to spread the cost.’
