    No payment of this is volunatary, if you don't pay it your stamp will be shrt for that tax year and this will affcet your entitlement to certain welfare benefits like Incapacity and ultimately affect the amount of state pension you will recieve. HMRC are only offering you the choice of paying it so that your NI record is complete for thhe year, whether you pay it or not is up to you
