What details can’t be updated online?
For security reasons, you’re unable to update your:
- Full name
- National Insurance number
- Date of birth
To update these details, we’ll need you to contact us with a copy of a document that confirms your identity. Take a look at ‘list A’ in our ‘confirming your identity’ leaflet for examples of what you can send us.
If your name has changed, you can instead send us either your original marriage certificate or deed poll (if you’re divorced, we’ll need to see your decree absolute instead).
If you’d like to update your National Insurance number, we’ll need you to send us written communication (eg a letter) from HMRC that includes your National Insurance number.
You can scan and send a copy to us at email@example.com, though please note this isn’t considered a secure way of sending your information.
You can also send this to us by post along with a brief explanation as to why you’re sending us this information.
Our address is:
The People’s Pension
