NI Number mix up


S

Steve

Hi All,

During a routine sort through of my papers & documents, I just noticed
that for the last 9 months, my employer has been using the wrong
insurance number on my pay slips. It seems that when I moved jobs at
Christmas, the new employer (who, incidentally, I am no longer with)
copied the number from my P45 incorrectly which has then subsequently
been transferred to my current employer (all PAYE, if that makes any
difference.)

Obviously, I now need to contact IR to correct the problem, but what
possible implications might this give rise to?

Many thanks for reading, and for any advice you can offer.

If the errors not picked up by IR then what will happen is that they will
see it as a break in your national insurance payment record, and it *might*
affect your pension when you come to retire. The NIC centres in Newcastle
used to write to people who had a broken record, to ask if they wanted to
make the shortfall up, but I think they stopped doing that a couple of years
ago.

I think that I would be inclined to get my mp onto it now. 18 months of
banging your head against a brick wall with the DWP/HMCR (or whatever
they are called now) saps the will to live.

AIUI Mitchum wrote that he had not contacted DWP at all yet so getting
to his MP is premature. Correcting a NI number is probably routine
for DWP.

(Many years ago the MNI as they then were wrote to me saying that my
employers seemed to be using a wrong NI number for me and would I
please get them to correct it! How they knew I never worked out bit
was sorted without problem.)
