What details can’t be updated online?

For security reasons, you’re unable to update your:

To update these details, we 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 you would 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, 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.
