Oh dear, no one seems to have known the answer. Did you seek advice from the DWP ? Your problem seems most odd.
I stayed at home when I had my children but then, when I retired, I found that I was penalised for my naÔvety.No one had given me advice way back then. Thank goodness I hadn't tried to save money in the short term by paying into the married woman's N.I. contribution when I returned to work. I imagine that scheme has been withdrawn, and quite rightly too!
