Thanks for the advice, Chris. No harm in doing this. I'll do it. Cheers.ChrisKH said:...If you have a P60 for the year in question I would copy this and send it to HMRC and ask them to confirm, in writing, that sufficient contributions have been made for the year in question. That will take six months to a year if my experience is anything to go by (if they respond at all). Make sure you keep copies of correspondence and send it recorded if you can. This is your entitlement to a retirement pension they are messing about with...
Pretty much spot on Chris. I left HMCE ( retired early ) just before the merger - My wife works for the tax end of the new HMRC. They're closing most of the local offices and routing enquiries through a few call centre manned by clerical assistants at 11K a year for 41 hours a week and requred to "turn round" a call within a couple of minutes or get penalised. Tax returns in some areas still aren't processed 3 months after being received. I'm pretty damned glad I got out when we were searching ships and catching drug smugglers!!!ChrisKH said:The (old) section of HMRC who dealt with NI contributions (DSS - are they still there?) were/are the most inept of government departments ever. I don't see why a reorganisation/merger (Customs and Excise and Inland Revenue have merged their functions) will make them that much more efficient. If anything the opposite is true because they are removing bodies to save costs hence, probably, the letter.
