National Insurance Number (NINo)
The National Insurance Number (NINo) is a number that proves you have the right to work in the UK when you’re looking for a job or starting as self-employed.
The number is made of two letters, six digits, and one letter at the end (for example, AB123456C).
How you can get a NINo:
- if you are born in the UK, you receive it when you’re 16
- if you moved to the UK, you have to apply for a National Insurance Number
- if you lost your National Insurance Number, here is how you can find it.
Where you can find your NINo:
- on your payslip
- on your P60 or P45
- on any letters from HMRC.
