Loan payments

National Insurance numbers


We cannot make payment of a loan to you if we do not have a verified National Insurance number for the learner.

The learner should provide this during the application process, but we will also try to get it from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

You can check whether you have any learners without a verified National Insurance number by using the filter on the Learning Information Search page.

You can confirm the attendance of a learner who has not submitted a National Insurance number, but the payment will be blocked.

EU learners do not need to provide a National Insurance number.
