National Insurance Number Application
Use this form to apply for a UK National Insurance number. If you already have a National Insurance Number you can recover your number by using a replacement application. Your National Insurance number is a number given to you by the UK government to keep track of your tax record and benefit entitlements.
If you are a non-UK resident, you will need a national insurance number to work, even if you are studying. Employers need the number in order to make tax deductions to your wages. You won’t be able to gain employment without a national insurance number. For more information about this service please visit our about page.
