Where can I find my National Insurance number?

Where can I find it?

Your National Insurance number can normally be found on a letter from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) or on your bank statement if your pension is paid into your bank account.

Your National Insurance number is 9 digits long and starts with two letters, followed by six numbers and one letter e.g. AB123456C. If you have lost it www.gov.uk/lost-national-insurance-number may help you find it.
