For reasons I never asked and don‘t understand my UK state pension is more because of this. It is currently over £200 a week...
You never contracted out of SERPS, My wife contracted out of SERPS & has a £50,000 private pension that grew to over £100,000 since being transferred to Hargreaves Lansdown being invested 100% in Fundsmith.

Re: Double Pension question

So, I did apply to pay class 2, they granted it, and told me an amount to pay for the past missing 15 years (£2385.50), which I did a month back, ASAP



My next question is, for those who paid it, how long does it take for this money to be credited to your account?

It takes some time to be credited, but within a year.

Re: Double Pension question

Why on earth would anything take so long? I assumed a couple of weeks, but clearly not..

Same story with Swiss contributions, they can take about a year to show up.
