Apologies if this has been addressed before, but I am presently making voluntary payments into a UK state pension since the requirement was increased to 35 years. As an autónomo, I have 5 years left to meet my minimum requirement.

 

I was hoping to draw from the expertise and experience of this group. Is it possible to benefits from 2 pensions?

In general, yes: you can claim UK State Pension if you've paid enough UK National Insurance contributions to qualify, that you can check on HMRC site (if you do not meet criteria - you can make a voluntary contribution till the certain amount - this is what you are doing now), but... The main difference is that if the State Pension increases, you may not benefit from the extra amount if you're living in Spain.
