Hi, I and my husband are newly moved to the U.K.. We are retired and not planning to work. On the other hand, we want to open some bank accounts that is requiring a National Insurance Number. However, the website says that 'You must also be looking for work or have an offer to start work in the UK', and 'You should only apply online if you need a National Insurance number to work in the UK.' As we are elderly people that retired, are we eligible to apply for National Insurance Number?
