    Hi leahwood,

    When you are sending in an original UK birth certificate as ID evidence you usually need to send a birth or adoption certificate form. It needs to be countersigned by someone who has known you for two years or more with a professional occupation. Did you send this?

    If you did send this it should have been processed by now so you would be best to give us a call on 0300 100 0607 so we can check it for you. If you haven't sent the birth or adoption certificate form then you can click on the link above to get this and print it off and get someone to countersign it for you. You usually wouldn't need to send your original birth certificate again if we have noted it on the account. We can check this for you when you call.

    Thanks

    Hi ash_91,

    A teaching assistant would not be accepted. There is a list of acceptable professions on the form itself. We would not need to see the birth certificate again as long as it was the original you sent previously. You can also check with us on 0300 100 0607 to make sure it was accepted and it is just the adoption and birth certificate form outstanding.

    Warm regards.
