Every student who is over school-leaving age and works with earnings above the Lower Earnings Limit* must give their employer, within seven days of starting work, a Social Insurance Registration card.
*The Lower Earnings Level is the point at which you start paying contributions. The level changes annually.
Social insurance cards can be obtained from Social Security or by calling 225700.
Please keep Social Security informed of any changes in your circumstances.
If you are a student and you require more information, please refer to the students leaflet [137kb]. Follow this link to contact us if you would like more information or guidance.
