Default NI Contributions - Being UK Resident or Not

Does anyone know what difference to the actual amount of contributions to be paid or the eventual pension to be received, being a UK resident or not would make if one were to pay NI contributions based on "working abroad"?

The form (CF83) and instruction leaflet asks this question but doesn't clarify implications.

A year's contribution is a year's contribution, whether paid at class 2 rate or otherwise. Each year's contribution up to 30 years gets you one-thirtieth of the full rate of pension. (Simplification, but that is more or less it..)

OK thanks.

What about whether you pick "I am ordinarily a UK resident" or you pick "I am NOT ordinarily a UK resident". What's the implication?

Not sure, just because when I filled out my CF 83 back in July, fortunately my case was really simple .. I've lived in the US since July 1, 1991, my last day of work in the UK was June 30, 1991, I've been working in the US ever since & was able to document both those facts. So they approved my application for Class 2 conts., I sent them a check which they have now deposited.

I don't know your situation, but I have a feeling that if you say "I am ordinarily a UK resident", maybe you would not be eligible to pay class 2 conts. I could be wrong there, though.

They asked you for documentation of your US work?

I remember I paid back around 04/05/06 for work done in the US but didn't have to provide documentation - though at that time it would have been easier

They may do, so I think I pre-empted them by simply sending them a photocopy of my W-2s for the last several years. I have just one employer so that was easy for me to do.
