GDS is developing GOV.UK Verify for people to prove their identity and use digital government services safely. HMRC has worked with GDS to develop alternative verification methods for anyone who has difficultly completing the GOV.UK Verify process. Support for customers to complete their digital Marriage Allowance application is available from HMRC online or on the phone.

No one need miss out on the Marriage Allowance. People can apply at any stage in the tax year and get the full entitlement regardless of when they submit their claim.
