Do part-years count for state pension?

    Thanks all for advice. To summarise in case anyone else is asking the same question: it's clear that you do have to have a full year of NI payments for that year to count. And once 6 years have passed, you can't top up.

    There is a useful and very clearly laid-out online service that shows one's contributions record, but you need a Government Gateway ID to access it. https://www.tax.service.gov.uk/check-your-state-pension/account/nirecord
