    Default UK Pension: Qualifying years

    Quick question:

    Are the year(s) we are on JET contribute towards the qualifying years needed to receive a full uk state pension?

    The years on JET can only be transfered to the UK pension system if you don't get a lump sum refund. If you already received your refund you cannot add the years to your pension.

    You can however use the refund money to make voluntary top up payments if you're worried.

    You only need 30 qualifying years now, so I'm well on track for a full state pension.

    Just started a private pension with my new work as well, so no more worries hopefully!

    Great men of action never mind on occasion being ridiculous; in a sense it is part of their job.
