No idea where I put it, and need it to get paid for some stuff.
How do I get a new one? Isn't it a bit of a nightmare?
I havent seen mine for 13 years
No fucking idea what happened to it.
neither of which I can find, I just googled it and apparently they don't issue replacement cards any more, I think I can get them to send me a letter with it on though, which could work, I just need it quickish, as I've left things until the last minute as usual.
it says on it THIS IS NOT PROOF OF ID
ive never been asked for any official proof of my national insurance number ever, but yeah payslips and p45's should be enough if youve got any
and I have no p45s or anything, as jobs I've had before have been family business cash in hand things.
go to the nearest job centre tomorrow with some id, and get them to write it down on some headed paper and sign it or something
can you just roll up to a job centre without an appointment and such and just get em to look it up and write it on something official looking?
if they're not busy* they might do it. i'm sure it's something they get asked a lot
banks have your NI number maybe if you get them to print out your details on headed paper
call this number tomorrow 0845 915 7006
and when they're unconscious carve the number into their forehead, in reverse. Wake them up and hold a mirror in from of them and scream THIS IS MY FUCKING NUMBER YOU BALLBAGGER.
they only need to know your NI number/code
I don't know why the uni can't just be content with me fucking telling them it.
or do the whole ringing up the government people who deal with it and get them to send me a letter with it on, but I can see that taking a week or something stupid.
The uni also want to see my birth certificate or passport, they're awkward, won't take my drivers licence.
i got one by going down to the council house, it was pretty straight forward.
I don't need a new number, I know my number, I just can't find the card, and the uni wont just take my word for what it is apparently. I looked online and I can get them to send me a letter telling what my number is, I just need it before next week.
it looked just like a medical card, really. i needed it for a passport thing, and it was official enough for that.
when i say 'card' i mean not a real plastic card, just a paper printout card thing
according to the website, just the number.
Should be on there if so. Failing that, it may be on any payslips you've had.
so none of them no.
it's been in two pieces since i let dave (the guitarist in the band I was in) use it to scrape frost off the van after a gig. that was over ten years ago.
No one has ever asked to see it
but it takes 7-10 days.
I need it in 6.
