Can’t find your national insurance number?

Every 16 years old in this country gets sent a letter with their National Insurance Number. You’ll also be able to find it on any payslips or letters about tax or benefits. If you still can’t find your National Insurance Number, call the National Insurance Helpline on the following number 03002003500

Don’t know where you’ll be on 12 December? Register for a postal vote here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/apply-for-a-postal-vote 

And remember, as a student you can register at both your home address AND your uni address. However, you can only vote at one of these addresses. Just turn up at the polling station on the day!
