  • RE: Verify Identity Gov Gateway

    I have recently gotten a freelance job which means I will need access to a Government Gateway account however, I am going round and round in circles with verifying my identity. I do not have any form of photo ID, and despite Government Gateway saying I can verify my identity by payslip, it only gives me the options of passport, credit reference or NI driving license. I have tried to go through Gov.Uk Verify but this has taken me back to Government Gateway saying I cannot verify through that way either as I don't have a passport. Are these options of post office and payslip/P60 missing or is there something wrong with my account? I have been told other colleagues have managed to verify without photo ID but whatever I click on is just going in circles.
