Disappointed by state pension forecast

Rosie Carr

I am aware that there is a new flat-rate state pension, and as I am just a decade away from retirement I requested a state pension forecast. I was shocked to learn how little I will be receiving compared with the headline rate and I cannot understand why there is such a difference. I was contracted out for a number of years and I know that I requested to be contracted back in at some point, but I do not have the details of when I wrote to HMRC or any record of their response. Is it possible for me to make extra payments so that I will be entitled to the full new pension?
