Direct quote from the web-site in the related link... "The suffix dates back to when contributions were recorded on cards which were returned annually, staggered throughout the tax year. "A" meant the card was to be returned in March; "B" in June; "C" in September and "D" in December. Although contribution cards are no longer used, the suffix has remained an integral part of the NINO."
