I was self-employed for a long time before that. What I would like to know is why I have a Contracted out deduction from my Pre 97 additional state pension. The pre 97 additional state pension is £46.40 Minus £32.54 = £13.86 paid. I would be much obliged if you could give me an explanation & if I am entitled to any money how would I go about getting it.
Dear Mr Matthewson
The contracted out deduction will relate to you DHSS scheme. It was a contracted out scheme that paid the extra bit of the contracted out part of the state pension early – from when you were made redundant and started to get your pension. Technically, you would need to wait until you received you State Pension at age 65. I do not think you will be entitled to any more money.
