Member of workforce with missing NI number.
To add a National Insurance number, go to their Staff Profile and in the Identity section add the NI. Select Add Identification Document and in the Type box, select National Insurance.
If you do have a staff member who doesn't have a national insurance number, you will be able to submit the census with the query. When submitting to COLLECT you will just need to provide a note explaining why.
Why can’t I add this National Insurance Number?
Arbor only allows for one National Insurance Number to be stored against any profile. So if you are seeing an error message that the National Insurance Number already exists it could be a number of reasons:
- Duplicate staff profiles - please see this guide which will explain how to deal with it. Either the profile needs to be deleted or merged.
- Could be stored on a guardian profile - please see this guide which explains how you can use the global search page to find historic records. Once you’ve found the guardian profile with the National Insurance Number you will need to remove it so it can be added to the staff profile.
