Class 2 NI

Dear All

I have a client who is self employed. Does his class 2 national insurance contributions qualify him for state pension?

Don't want to hijack a thread, but have a client who has never paid Class 2, thinking, wrongly, it didn't qualify him for anything. Can he backdate his contributions to secure his state pension?
