    I have applied for student finance, but it asks me to provide a national
    insurance number which I unfortunately don't have. I am 20 years old and did not get one when I turned 16.

    The supposed deadline for student finance is May 31st and I'm scared that the lengthy process of getting a NI number from scratch combined with the process of student finance will make me miss the deadline.

    Can I please get some opinion or guidance on this?

    Hi piotr22,

    Have you been assessed for maintenance loan and tuition fees?

    Thanks

    Not yet, I have everything filled out on the online application apart from the NI number.

    Hi piotr22,

    We will still process your application and once your application for Student Finance has been fully assessed and approved, we will send your details to the DWP for validation. If your details are unmatched a file will be sent to the Job Centre Plus (JCP) by the DWP, who will contact you to arrange an appointment for a NINO.

    Thanks

    Thank you for the quick reply. Do you have an estimate how long would getting that NIN take? I'm just worried about the deadline for student finance.

    Hi piotr22,

    I'm afraid we don't have a timescale of how long this will take.

    Thanks
