National insurance

Q:I took 24-hour retirement when I was 60, but for the past year I have been off sick. I am retiring from the practice at the end of the month after many years as a full-time principal. As my health improves, I may do a few GP locum sessions. Do I need to continue paying national insurance (NI)? On retirement I will get my proportional payment from the practice for my last month. Would I be entitled to any more money later on which is paid in arrears? What will happen to my capital and current accounts when I leave?
