Government are phasing out National Insurance number cards
Home > Government are phasing out National Insurance number cards

If you are taking on a new employee they may not have a National Insurance Number Card.
 
Traditionally HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has notified individuals of their National Insurance number for the first time by sending them a plastic National Insurance number card.
 
Last year, it was announced that HMRC would stop issuing National Insurance number cards and send letters instead.
 
HMRC stopped issuing replacement National Insurance number cards in October 2010. Since then, if you ask for a reminder of your National Insurance number you get a letter confirming it instead.
 
From July 2011, HMRC will stop issuing cards to adults. However, if you are approaching age 16 and are eligible to receive a number automatically, you will still be sent a National Insurance number card. This will continue until later in the year.
