    Yeah Job Centre. You have wait to get an appointment, then wait in the waiting room, then wait whilst they check you're not a terrorist. And then they give you one!

    Alternately, tell them you forgot everythning and they will still give you one :rolleyes:

    since the poster appears to be a full british citizen who was born here it should be a case of just pulling it out of the records or getting a NI card sent out to them. he/she will have had a number assigned since birth (if they were born in the UK that is)

    As a British Citizen who had never had a NI number before, like the OP, I feel I can confidently advise them on what to expect.

    I can't help thinking your signature makes me doubt your sincerity.

    Anyway, yeah, get in touch with people and they'll send you it. They won't mess you about because that'll just waste their resources.

    I never received one. However, all work I've done has been fairly illegal thus far so it doesn't matter.

    ive been living in england all my life, was born in england and my parents were both born in england. i am 100% english but i never got sent one and neither did my brothers and sister.
    call this number, they will send you a form and you send it back and then they send you the number. however, you wont get a card ( i think you have to pay). oh and dont go to the dss etc cos they will just send you to other places and it will piss you off...gr *bitter*
    the number is: 08459157006 and be firm!tell them what you want!
    hope this helps xxx

    You (should) get your NI card when you turn 16.

    You pay NI when you earn more than the NI threshold.
