REGISTERING UNDER THE NATIONAL INSURANCE SCHEME

Under the National Insurance Act, every person on attaining age 18 years is required to be registered under the National Insurance Scheme. The Ministry maintains a permanent record for each person registered under the Scheme. This is called a Life Record and comprises:

  • The insuredís National Insurance number.

  • The insuredís name

  • The employer(s) name and reference number(s)

  • The number of weeks worked

  • The joint employee/employer contributions

The National Insurance number is the means by which the Ministry identifies each contributor. Failure to register, registering more than once or registering with an incorrect name and incorrect year of birth could result in the loss of benefit or a portion thereof.
