National Insurance

The appropriate national insurance contributions will be deducted from your salary and forwarded to H.M Revenue & Customs National Insurance Contributions Office together with your national insurance number. This number is normally located on your income tax form P45 which is provided by your former employer. If it is not and you have a separate record of it, please ensure that you quote it on your Staff Record form.

If you are new to the UK you will need to apply for a National Insurance (NI) number. If you are from one of the following countries UCL can assist you in obtaining your NI number using a ‘fast track’ application form, unless you are undertaking work on a casual contract: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden or Switzerland.

The NI ‘fast track’ forms are available from HR Reception on 0207 679 5672 (internal 45672), emailing newstarters@ucl.ac.uk or by visiting the HR Counter, 9th floor, 1-19 Torrington Place (open Monday - Friday 10:00 am to 4:00 pm).

All other nationals must make an appointment directly with the Contact Centre at Job Centre Plus on 0845 6000 643.

Men over 65 and women over 60 must provide a Certificate of Age Exception CA4140. Married women who have elected to pay a reduced rate of national insurance contributions must provide a Reduced Liability Certificate CA4139. Until they do so full contributions will be deducted.
