    HMRC has launched a new online voluntary NICs payment service.

    The government says the new service will make it easier for customers to check for and fill any gaps in their National Insurance record to help increase their State Pension.

    It also said that the new Check your State Pension service has been enhanced to include an end-to-end digital solution.

    The service shows customers by how much their State Pension could increase and outlines the voluntary NICs they would need to pay to achieve this.

    The service also allows people under the State Pension age to view gaps in their National Insurance record and pay voluntary contributions to fill the gaps.

    Minister for Pensions, Paul Maynard, said:

    ‘The State Pension is the foundation of income in retirement, which is why we have introduced this new online tool to help simplify boosting it for those who are able to.

    ‘I would encourage everyone to check their State Pension forecast and to take a look at how they could improve their State Pension award with only a few simple clicks.’
