I was claiming JSA on and off during the 2017/18 tax year and was in receipt of National Insurance contributions only. During the time I was claiming there was many issues and had to contest many attempts by the DWP to deny me access to benefits. Having taken two decisions to the complaints tribunal the rulings were eventually made in my favour and I was backdated the NI contributions.
?Since I didn't actually receive payment I have no way of knowing if I was actually awarded the NI contributions for the dates I was eligible. I have contacted the DWP and requested a statement for the dates that I was credited NI contributions, however, I was told that they cannot do that and that I should contact HMRC. Checking on the HMRC website, it seems that the information is a year in arrears and only then provides the number if weeks credited.
?Anyone have any suggestions who I should contact so that I can receive a detailed statement of dates that I was credited NI contributions? Is the DWP obliged to provide this information? If so how should I contact the relevant department?
