If you are new to the UK and wish to work or study here in the UK, you must have a National Insurance number to do so, which is a unique reference given only to you. All employers and universities in the UK will require you to have this when you apply so get your National Insurance Number as soon as possible, ready for when you need it. Please note, this does not automatically mean that you will have to pay National Insurance, as this will depend on your individual work or study circumstances.
If you have lost your National Insurance number
If you already have a National Insurance number and you’ve lost it, you should click “Need A Reminder Sent Out?” above. Fill out the form online with your personal details, such as your full name, date of birth, current address, and previous address if applicable. Your signature is needed, so we will then either email or post out the form for you signature. You will need to return it to the address on the form, and then your reminder letter will be issued and posted out, and will arrive with you by post usually within 7 days
Working without a National Insurance number
You can start work for an employer before your National Insurance number arrives, if you can prove you have the right to work in the UK. You should tell your employer that you have applied for one, and give it to them as soon as possible after you receive it. They will use the number to run their payroll, and make sure you are paying the correct amount of NI through your pay, if any is due
If you have turned 16 and didn’t get it sent out by post
If you are a British National, you should have been sent a National Insurance number just before your 16th birthday, if you live in the UK. Call the National Insurance numbers help line if you didn’t get one and you are 16 or 17 years of age. They will be able to deal with this.
