June 2024 | How the HMRC App Simplifies Student Finance Applications

An app from HMRC which provides essential information, such as your National Insurance number and tax details, can help assist students who are planning to start university in September.  with their student finance applications.

In the 12 months to March 2024, more than 112,000 customers called the National Insurance Helpline to find out their lost or forgotten NI number, with almost half of these calls coming from customers aged between 16 and 20, according to HMRC's data.

May was also the busiest month, with more than 6,400 young people calling the helpline for this information, which coincides with them applying for their student finance, HMRC said.
