Contribution Gap

Anyone who does not pay contributions every year from 1 January following their 20th birthday until 31 December before reaching the reference age or who does not have a right to parental credits or care credits, has contribution gaps. These result in a reduction in your pension. They can be made up for fully or in part with youth years.
