Continuing national insurance contributions after immigration to USA
 
Is it possible to continue paying national insurance contributions after I immigrate to the USA on a fiance visa? I've paid 6 years of contributions as I was employed before I went to university.

The only information I've found out is that you will receive the state pension in the USA.

Yes ....you need to pay for 30 years to get a full pension .. its not a bad deal

It does seem like a good deal.

I can do it if I'm a USA resident?

Is it still possible to do if I become a US citizen?

Yes.

Sure... why not? You'd still be a UKC!

But you can only contribute x number of years I thought, so if someone is this far from being close to getting the full sum, it might not be worth it and using the SS contributions as the top up.
