To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many Employment and Support Allowance claimants have notified his Department of a shortfall in their National Insurance credits; what estimate he has made of how many such cases there are in total; and how many such cases have been resolved as of 16 February 2024.

The Department does not hold the data concerning claimants who have notified the Department regarding a shortfall in their National Insurance Credits. Nor is there data on how many cases of this type have been resolved. All ESA claimants receive Class 1 National Insurance Credits as part of their award. However, if any individuals believe that an error has been made they should contact the DWP.
