Youth Years

Employees and self-employed persons pay OASI contributions from 1 January following their 17th birthday, non-employed persons pay from 1 January following their 20th birthday. The three years between these two dates are referred to as “youth years”. They are not taken into consideration when calculating your old-age pension but can fill contribution gaps in later years (up to three later years).
