ABOUT THE NATIONAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (NIN)

The National Identification Number (NIN) is a set of numbers assigned to an individual upon successful enrolment. Enrolment consists of the recording of an individual’s demographic data and capture of the ten (10) fingerprints, head-to-shoulder facial picture and digital signature, which are all used to cross check existing data in the National Identity Database to confirm that there is no previous entry of the same data.

Once this (de-duplication) process is completed, the data is then stored with a unique NIN that is assigned to it. The NIN once issued to a person cannot be used again, meaning that, it cannot be issued to another person even if the previous person is dead. It is the NIN that helps to tie all records about a person in the database and is used to check the identity verified.

The National Identification Number (NIN) consists of eleven (11) non- intelligible numbers randomly chosen and assigned to an individual at the completion of enrolment into the National Identity Database (NIDB).

Other relevant information you need to know about the NIN include the following:

  • Once a NIN is assigned to an individual, it can never be reassigned, given or used by another person – that makes it unique in nature.
  • In the case of the demise of an individual, his/her NIN is retired once a death certificate is presented to the Commission and the individual’s death is established.
  • The NIN is used to tie all records about an individual in the database and is also used to establish or verify his/her identity.
  • All citizens and legal residents in Nigeria, from age zero (birth) and above are eligible to enrol for their NINs.
  • The NIN should be closely guarded by individuals and not revealed to all and sundry except to relevant authorities when requested (for instance it shouldn’t be disclosed online over social media and should not be printed along with contact details on business cards or other office stationery).

It is mandatory for every citizen and legal resident to enrol for the National Identification Number (NIN). The process is the same whether you choose the self-service or you require an assisted service. Minors are not issued with the National Identity cards until they attain the age of 16.

At the completion of the enrolment process, applicant will be issued two (2) slips:

  • Transaction Slip
  • NIN Slip indicating completion of enrolment.

Applicants ideally collect their NINs at the enrolment centres where they enrolled, but in certain circumstances they can request the NINs be transferred to other centres of their choice. NIN can only be collected by an individual after biometric verification and not by proxy.

You have a phone number so people can contact you. Get your National Identification Number so people can Identify you. The National Identification Number (NIN) is the unique number which identifies you for life and is issued to you by NIMC after your enrolment. It is used to match you with your biometric data and other details in the National Identity Database during verification and authentication. The NIN is set to be used for all transactions in Nigeria requiring identity verification so you’ll be using your NIN for the following:

  • obtaining your National e-ID card
  • travel (international passport application & acquisition)
  • opening personal bank accounts
  • getting your driver’s license
  • obtaining your Permanent Voters’ Card
  • participating in the National Health Insurance Scheme
  • payment of your taxes
  • transactions related to your contributory pension scheme
  • access to welfare and other relevant services from the Nigerian Government
  • transactions with social security implications
  • land transactions subject to the Land Use Act
  • any other transactions NIMC may so prescribe and list in the Federal Government Gazette

NIMC is engaged in harmonization and integration of data with various agencies across Nigeria who deal with the various services above to ensure smooth coordination of activities.
