Refunds of National Insurance

National Insurance

It is possible to overpay National Insurance. This may happen, for example:

  • if you have paid National Insurance after reaching the state pension age,
  • if you are highly paid and have more than one employment or are employed and self-employed on high earnings and didn’t apply for deferment.

There is a tool for reclaiming National Insurance on the Gov.uk website here.
