National Insurance contributions...

Hi there

Thought I'd ask this question here in case anyone knows. I have been in the US since Sept 2005, and may one day go back to the UK but have no plans at present. I still have a British bank account and have a direct debit for National Insurance contributions, which I still pay (I was self-employed in the UK and just never cancelled it).

Should I stop making the payments or will I have trouble getting NHS treatment if I go back otherwise?

Thanks for any advice!

You only need to pay Class 3 Contributions to maintain your state pension and berevment benefits. Your State Pension will be paid to you in the USA if you are still living here when you reach retirement age.

Husband has been here almost four years now.

We've come to the conclusion that we should.

One of the nice things about an international relationship is you can decide where you want to live. We used to think we would be in the US forever. Now we aren't so sure.

It's good to keep your options open.
