If you are no longer liable to pay Class S PRSI (for example, if you stop being self-employed or if your annual income falls below the €5,000 limit, and you are under pensionable age, you may apply to become a voluntary contributor, in order to maintain the continuity of your PRSI record for pension purposes only.

Voluntary contributions give cover for the pensions that you were covered for when you were last working and paying compulsory PRSI.
