HMRC estimates that fewer than 1,000 individuals currently pay the married women’s reduced rate of National Insurance.

HMRC has a statutory duty of confidentiality regarding taxpayer information, which prohibits officers of HMRC from releasing specifics on individual taxpayers. As a result, the Government cannot provide the information requested on the youngest person currently paying the reduced rate of National Insurance contributions for married women and widows.
