Enhanced State Pension from NIC Autocredits

Currently waiting for a response from Department for Work and Pensions, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Please provide the total figure of extra State Pension in payment to 9.8m men resulting from autocredits to their NI records between ages 60-65.

Those 9.8m men who applied for free NIC autocredits between 1993-2018 gained extra State Pension for life. I wish to know what the total cost has been to date to those 9.8m men on this auto credited part of their State Pension only.

What they earned based on any other NI-able earnings is to be excluded

Yours faithfully

P Hinder
