A client came to UK and started self-employment in 1995. State retirement age is May 2019. He has more than 10 qualifying years for state pension but not the maximum 35 years. He will be due to pay Class 2 NIC for 2018/19 but this of course is not due until January 2020.
Can he pay the C2 NIC early to add an extra year to his pension entitlement? I know you can pay early to get Maternity Allowance but can't find any reference to this for state pension.
