Allocation of NINos

There have been many instances in recent years where people who do not have leave to enter or remain in the UK have been issued with a National Insurance Number to facilitate benefit payments to a partner who DOES have this right.  This has meant that providers (and others) cannot assume that just because someone has a NINo that they have the legal right to be in or work in the UK.

This (frankly daft) state of affairs is coming to an end.  DWP have announced that in future a NINo will only be allocated to people who have a right to be the UK.
