    Following the above decision and various other threads on this I am just after some clarification if possible.

    Has the decision made it so that claimants/partners have to apply directly to the DWP for a NINO?

    If this is the case are DCI 1 LA’s only any use for claimants/partners who have NINO’s but cannot remember it or have no proof of it?

    Sorry if this is a dopey question,

    Until we get specific guidance on this, I think it is down to local procedures as to what we use a DCI1LA form for.

    In my opinion, I think it would be very unlikely that anyone would refuse to apply for a NINo (I understand the claimant in CH/3801/2004 was incorrectly advised to do this by a solicitor).

    Therefore, if I had a case where the partner had no NINo, I would process the claim, send a DCI1LA, and then terminate the claim only if the DWP told us the person has refused to apply for a NINo (which, as mentioned earlier, would be unlikely).

    Regards
