I don't understand. According to one part of gov't website I only need 30 years fully paid NI to qualify for full basic state pension. Then elsewhere I check my NI contributions and I'm paid up 30 years in full but it also tells me I have made no contributions in the last 4 tax years and need to pay to bring up to date plus 17 more years of paying NI. Explanations are vague, non-existent or confusing. Should I be continuing to pay to keep pension index linked or is there another reason to pay? Healthcare?

Any advice much appreciated.

I believe the years of payment required have been extended BUT as you state it is hard to find any details out about it. I will ask my financial advisor next time he calls.
