Grandparents: don’t miss out on national insurance credits

A parent who gives up work is provided with national insurance credits while their children are aged under 12. Under the Specified Adult Childcare credits scheme, if a parent works, the credits can instead be claimed by relatives under State Pension age who care for the child in question.

A grandparent or other relative who takes part in the scheme for a full year is able to claim an extra 1/35th of the state pension – worth up to £231 a year. Furthermore, individuals who have missed out on the scheme can make backdated claims to 2011.
