With the National Identity Management USSD platform, you can now check your National Identification Number using USSD code. If you’ve registered for your National ID Card, then you must have been given the NIN (National Identification Number). Having a NIN is one of the measures to create a national identity database according to the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC). Another reason is also to curb identity fraud of any kind. While you’re waiting for your National ID card, ensure that you always have your NIN with you. If for some reasons you can’t remember or misplaced your NIN, then continue reading this short article to see how you can get it via USSD code.
How to check your NIN using USSD Code
Remember that you can only have a NIN after you’ve registered for a National ID card. If you did not register, you won’t have a NIN. We advise that you go to the nearest NIMC office and register for your National ID card.
Those that have registered can check their NIN by dialling *346# on their phone. It is IMPORTANT that you use a phone number associated with either your BVN registration, voter’s card or driver’s license. You’ll be charged the sum of twenty naira (N20), so make sure you have enough airtime.
Write down the NIN or take a screenshot of it cause it will only display once. This USSD method works on the Glo, Airtel and MTN networks only. It is yet to be available on the 9mobile network.
