Benefits & support The evidence you need to send us for Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support

Evidence of your National Insurance number can be one of these.

  • P45 or P60.
  • Letter from HM Revenue and Customs about tax or tax credit.
  • Bank statements showing payments by direct debit for class-2 National Insurance contributions, or benefit payments received showing your NINo on the statement, for example, Incapacity Benefit or State Pension.
  • Payslips, salary statement or works pension statement (as long as it shows your NINo).
  • Letter that the Pension Service or Jobcentre Plus has sent to you (not handwritten).
  • NINo card (not handwritten).

These are examples, not a full list. We need one document to confirm your National Insurance number and one to confirm your partner's National Insurance number, if you have a partner.

See the government's website for more about National Insurance and how to apply for a National Insurance number if you don't have one.
