Evidence of your National Insurance number can be any one of the following:

  • Bank statements showing payments by direct debit for class-2 National Insurance contributions, or benefit payments received showing your National Insurance number on the statement, for example, Incapacity Benefit or State Pension.

  • Payslips, salary statement or works pension statement (as long as it shows your National Insurance number).

  • Letter that the Pension Service or Jobcentre Plus has sent to you (not handwritten).

  • National Insurance number card (not handwritten).


Note: This list is not exhaustive.

We need one document to confirm your National Insurance number and one to confirm your partner's National Insurance number, if you have a partner.
