Following a change in the way in which HMRC issues NI number letters to young people, there were some delays in issuing these automated letters. HMRC is now working to send individuals their letters.

Anyone who has not received their automated NINo letter and needs one, can contact HMRC’s helpline on 0300 200 3500 to arrange for one to be issued.
