So the UK's National Insurance Number (NIN) is like the USA's Social Security Number (SSN) and Australia's Tax File Number (TFN)
not made for a universal ID but is used as one
@kurisu well I needed an NIN to open a bank account, I need it to get welfare I think..so right now I don't see how it differs
@kurisu passport is all the ID i have right now, it's not enough
@kurisu OH wait I needed a proof of address. the letter from HMRC with my NIN was a suggested letter since I have no bills or anything else listed under my name....sorry there
