PRSI Voluntary Contrib and PUP

Not sure whether this belongs here or in Welfare & State Benefits, but anyway...

I was submitting my 2020 tax return earlier and my husband was on PUP for most of the year. He is a self-employed professional. His total assessable income fell below the €5000 so no PRSI charged. Obviously we want to keep up his PRSI record in case there is still a state pension in 20 years or so but we are unsure whether he gets a stamp for PUP (and if so whether the fact that he had about 42 instead of 52 weeks will matter) or whether he should contact DSP to make a voluntary contribution.

Any advice gratefully received.

Hi Ciru75, thanks for that but we were wondering whether the fact that he won't have 52 credits for the year will be a problem. Is there any way to "buy" the other 10?
