National Insurance Number (NINo)

[ˈnæʃənl ɪnˈʃʊərəns ˈnʌmbə (NINo)]



A National Insurance Number shows you have the right to work in the UK. If you were born in the UK, it is sent to you automatically when your turn 16 years old.

More detail:

A National Insurance Number (NINo) is a unique identifier issued by the UK government to every person eligible for work or study above the age of 16.

It is a combination of two letters at the start, six numbers and then another letter at the end.

You can find it on a various selection of documents and forms like a Payslip, a P60, letters about tax, and the National Insurance Number section of your Personal Tax Account.

It can be required by entities like HMRC, your employer, local council and many others.
