The numbering scheme changed after yours was assigned, but if you still have your permanent number you can do an online check at Check your National Insurance record.

The same site lists a telephone number you can call for help, and a snail mail address you can use if the other methods fail.

If your number was a temporary number issued in the 1970's or earlier, then there will be no record of it today.

  • It is understand the numbering scheme has changed but I still have employee leaving copy so what would be the next step... Commented May 12, 2015 at 10:00
