Records created or inherited by the Contributions Agency
The Contributions Agency was set up on 10 April 1991, as a Next Steps Agency of the Department of Social Security.
Contributions Agency's functions and personnel were composed of the former Records Sections of the Department of Social Security's Benefits and Records Division. The Agency was responsible for the collection and recording of National Insurance contributions, the maintenance of individual National Insurance records, and the provision of an advisory service to government, business and the general public.
In 1999, responsibility for overseeing the work of the Contributions Agency passed from the Department of Social Security to the Inland Revenue; whereupon it was renamed the National Insurance Contributions Office.
