    We have a customer who has advised us her partner from Nigeria has now moved in with her. His passport states no recourse to public funds & he is staying here under a visa which expires in 2014. He has not applied for a national insurance number.

    He says he is a director of his own company in Nigeria & has opened a bank a/c here to receive an income from the business. He ships items of white goods & electrical goods from here to Nigeria to sell.

    Do we include him on the claim with no nino & use a dummy one?

    From 06/04/09 such a partner does not need to have a National Insurance number. However you still need to send a DCI1LA to the Isle of Wight. The Jobcentre Plus may refuse to allocate a Nino. In this case we can still pay the claim and use a dummy Nino for the customer; however, there are issues if the person does not comply with the JCP in attending interview etc.

    Check out circular A4/2009

    He requires a NINO because he has a visa. He is not one of the exempt ones. If the visa had expired then he would be exempt from the NINO requirement.

    The question is now, where do we find a copy of the DCI 1 form, as our authority has not had to do this for a while?! Also, where do we find out where to send it to?

    We have had the DC11 returned by the DWP stating we have not ticked the ‘Entitled to benefit’ box. How do we answer this question, and can we put him into the claim with a ficticious NINO?

    Yes, you can put him on the claim and you just need to tick “yes” in the box.
