National Insurance Credits for Grandparents & Family Members
Are you one of 90,000 grandparents or family members who aren't claiming national insurance credits for looking after their relatives' children?
A recent article on BBC business news highlighted the fact that this is a perk which can increase their state pension but very few people are aware of it. Insurance firm Royal London said 90% of those eligible were failing to claim this benefit, known as the Adult Specified Childcare Credit. The credits can be worth up to £230 per year.
