    I've lost my national insurance card but I have note of the number. Do I need to get a replacement or am I ok with just knowing the number. If I do have to get it replaced is it a long process? Need it for student finance

    It's fine just knowing the number If you do apply for a replacement, you're only allowed to ever have one replacement.

    I don't mean to hi-jack the thread, but I've never been given a National Insurance card, neither was my sister. However she managed to get the information of the card somehow, so has no problem when asked for the number.

    Would anyone happen to know off the top of their head what I should do or what you've done if in a similar position? If not, I'll do some searching about in the morning.

    Ring them and ask for it to be sent out. This is of course if your 16 or over.

    Just having the number is enough. Try to remember it off by heart though. :yes:

    It's not a huge problem, keep a note of that number.


    Also, if/when you have a job, your payslip states it so you can keep them for reference.

    If you've never had a National Insurance number
    If you've never been given a National Insurance number you should contact your local Jobcentre Plus, Social Security Office or Jobcentre for an interview. They will be able to help you apply. They can also give you a form CA5404. You can then show this form to your employer, as proof that you've applied for a number.

    For more information you can phone the National Insurance registration Helpline on 0845 915 7006.
