Hello and thank you for allowing me to assist you.

Expert:  TaxRobin replied 1 year ago.

No, that is for if you have over paid.

You can’t claim back any National Insurance when you leave.

Anything you’ve paid might count towards benefits in the country you’re moving to if it has a social security agreement with the UK.
