    I have applied to get the missus a NI number Interview twice now, for unseen reasons she has missed both dates, I called last week to arrange another time and was told by the chap at the end of the phone that if she doesnt attend the next interview she wont recieve a NI number.

    Fair enough I said, she can go and work in the Black Economy. Didnt go down to well....

    Thats because you used the wrong terminology!

    Haven't you heard of Political Correctness? The DWP now call it the shadow economy!!

    I think its in honour of their fraud investigators, always chasing shadows......... :

    Yeah tend to echo the sentiments.

    We were told at the interview that their is no guarantee that a number will be awarded to you. I told the interviewer that if Mol wasn't given a number then you can hardly expect her to pay tax and ni. Needless to say she got it.

    Chaps, a National Insurance Number is a right to those who are qualified.

    Quote, Chaps, a National Insurance Number is a right to those who are qualified.

    My wife is actively looking for employment now (she has 2 yrs on FLR) so please excuse my ignorance, what does that actually mean - "qualified?"

    thanks in advance

    From Applying for a National Insurance number
    You should apply for a NI number if:

    you will be making a claim for benefit, or
    your partner is claiming benefit for you.
    This should be done through your local Jobcentre Plus office. You can find your local office on the Jobcentre Plus website.

    You should also apply for a NI number if:

    you have started or are about to start work
    you are self-employed, or
    you want to pay voluntary NI contributions and would benefit from paying them.
    For these applications you should telephone 0845 600 0643 between 8.00am and 6.00pm, Monday to Friday.

    If you are hard of hearing, or have speech difficulties, call our textphone on 0845 600 0644.
    If you are legally resident in the UK and have a genuine need for it, as listed above, then they must give you one.

    Indeed Although it should be noted that there are other circumstances too where a NINo must be issued.
