Title: Is it worth topping up UK state pension with class 3 NICS?
Post by: jade on October 09, 2016, 03:52:35 AM
Hi all,

I read this article yesterday:

about the benefits of topping up your state pension with Class 3 NICS and wanted to get some thoughts on it? My husband is a nurse and contracted out for SERPS for a while so will have a deduction to his state or pension allowance as things stand. I did some googling and found this by Monevator:

We recently posted a case,study to give you a little more info on us:

As a result of the case study we now have a Vanguard Lifestyle 60 and workplace pension for me and I'm wondering if we should just use this, or whether to divert some money to buying Class 3 NICS for my husbands state pension?

Thanks in advance!
