Hi everyone, I've signed up for the Government Gateway and got my ID. However, it's asking me to verify my identity but I don't have the requirements documents. I have my Payslip, so that's not an issue. But it asks for a second document, which can be a UK Passport or UK Driver's Licence issued by DVLA - I have neither of these two. How can I get around this and verify my identity some other way? If it helps, I'm a EU Citizen with Settled Status, so I have an EU passport and an EU driver's licence. Thank you in advance!

I have exactly the same issue (although still under pre-settled status) Calling HMRC-Contact didn't help at all as they (3 seperate people) couldn't even advise on the issue. Sending an email to GDS, they simply replied to check with hmrc-Contact Hmrc contact sent me to tax-office which in turn pointed back to hmrc-Contact. Did you have any luck with this?
