Have I already given you my National Insurance Number?

If you have a recent pay advice slip to hand, your National Insurance Number (NINO) would be on there if we have it. Or, you can check online to see if we’ve got it. Here’s how:

  1. Log into your account and click on My account
  2. Click on Personal details
  3. Scroll down to where it says National Insurance Number

If we have your NINO, you’ll see it here. If not, please send us a note of it as soon as you can. If you don’t have one yet, you should apply via Jobcentre Plus.

When we have a note of your NINO, you get tax relief on your pension contributions. It also ensures that HMRC record all of your tax and National Insurance contributions against your name. This is important because it can affect your State Pension and other benefits.
