Is it safe to give NI No in the application forms?
« on: May 11, 2013, 02:39:28 PM »

Yes it is safe to provide your National Insurance number.  If someone inappropriate comes across your form and tries to steal your identity then they will have a big job ahead of them, as they'll still have to produce a fake photo ID etc.  By law all employers should be checking new starter's NI number and photographic ID to ensure they match and therefore have a right to work in the UK.

Yes, agree with this.  It is perfectly safe, they have to check you are eligible to work in the UK

A national insurance number is not a form of identification that could used for identity fraud and so giving that number should be safe.
