    I'm just curious, I sent off form CA5403 to retrieve my NI number and I'm wondering how long it will take them to send it out or even send a reply back?

    I sent it off 2 to 3 weeks ago

    This happened to me last year and it took about month or a month and a half before I got it sent back to me (by which time I'd actually found my original one which I'd lost two years previous!). It does take AGES for them to send it to you, it's annoying.

    Admittedly I lost my N.I. number about 5 years ago but all I did was call a phone number answer a few questions and they sent it to me within a few days. Obviously it might have changed recently though.
