So I asked for my NIN application to be sent to my corporate housing address.  It's been 3 4 working days.  How long should I expect it to take?

I think it took me a week or two to get my application. Lower your expectations for time scales with the Department of Work and Pensions.

ETA: not sure if you meant 3-4 or 34. The spacing is odd. If it's been 34 I would definitely call them.

I just read that the application needs to be written in BLOCK CAPITAL letters, after I finished it. I have very neat handwriting but I wrote in under-case. Will I need to fill out the form again?

Because your writing is neat, I wouldn't bother.

I am sure they only say that for a better chance of it being legible.

If you wish to work in the UK, you will need a National Insurance number in order to make sure you are taxed at the correct rate.

Once you have your FLR(M) BRP card you can apply for a National Insurance number - since you have FLR(M) rather than a spousal visa you will likely need to attend an interview, and then it can take around a month to receive it.

In theory, you can start working before you have an NI number, but employers usually ask for it in the application process, and you will be taxed at a higher rate until you have it, so it's best to get it sorted sooner rather than later.

See here for how to apply: https://www.gov.uk/apply-national-insurance-number

Nope, as you came over on  marriage visa/fiance visa, you'll have to call and set up an appointment for an in person appointment at a job centre plus to have them fill out the paperwork while you are in the office with them.

https://www.gov.uk/apply-national-insurance-number

Info you need is here. There are only so many job centre plus you can use so you have to call to find the one closest to you and they set up the appointment while you are on the phone with them.

You entered the UK on a marriage fiance visa which is a short term visa that allows you to apply for actual settlement (FLR) after you married.

So you (and everyone who comes over on the marriage visa/fiance visa that allows you to apply for settlement while in the UK) must call one of the numbers on the link I gave you to speak with someone in regards to your NINo.

They're pretty nice, huh? Guy I spoke with when I was applying for mine was really chatty and helpful.

Had to travel quite a ways though for my appointment. All the way to Nottingham.

I have a spouse visa.  Do I still a NIN if I am working for my US company?  I know I have to pay U.K. taxes regardless of the company being in the US but was not sure if I need to apply for the national insurance number too.
