I have set up a gateway account. I wish to check gaps in my National Insurance. The Gateway says in need to verify my ID using two out of: Current passport. Mobile phone contract. Northern Ireland Driving licence. My passport expired during lockdown I have a PAYG phone. I live in Sussex. Why would I have a Northern Ireland Driving Licence? How can I verify my ID??? It would appear that in order to do so I need to take out a mobile phone contract and move to Belfast. This is ridiculous.
