Hi bro58,

I understand you can only reclaim ESA(CR)after gaining employment, but any ideas as to how long you have to work to build up enough NI contributions to reclaim ????

Radhika.

It's not an exact science, Contributions have to be in the correct period to be taken into account, you have to be earning at a certain level to even pay NI, and there is a minimum number of credits that have to be accumulated.

Taking all of the above into account, I think it unlikely that you could accrue sufficient credits in less than six months.
