You need to answer the question “is my SP entirely due to my husband’s contributions”
If so, read through the categories & you will clearly see which category you are in. I’m sorry I don’t have the paperwork to hand otherwise I could tell you, but I remember that category is quite clearly stated.
I believe your husband would be in Category 1 or 2, which is where my ex army husband with similar length of army service is.
I just showed our accountant that email, we said my husband was eligible (ie cat 1 or 2) & she immediately applied the UPP to his SP & saved us some money.
If you or your husband has a UK private pension which you have contributed to, the same UPP allowance applies & you can write to the ATO & request it. They will want to know some details of your contributions & size of the fund however, then there is a wait for their decision.
You don’t need to contact UK Pension Service, the ATO knows all about this matter.
Good luck. I hope some contributors much cleverer than I will help you out better, but I thought you might like to receive the above in case no one else replied. .
