I have a National Insurance number already from when I previously lived in the UK with ILR in 2002-2005 .

We are going back to the UK in 2018 and I know I have to get a Spouse VISA, but will my NIN remain the same?

It should stay the same - I believe once it has been issued, you keep it for life (it's like a SSN# in that respect).

Hi,

My wife has her BRP and is just filling out her details for her first job in the UK. (She's from the US, moved here after we were married on a spouse visa) Is her NI number one of the numbers and letters on the back of her BRP or do we need to apply for it separately?

Many thanks

No, you need to apply for it separately.

I believe only certain employer-sponsored work visas have the NI number issued on the back of the BRP. Everyone else has to apply for it.

See here for how to apply for an NI number:

I have a NIN from when I lived in the UK previously from 1998-2005.

Since I didn't know my ILR would become null and void after two years (GRRR!) I am now preparing to apply for a spouse visa so that we can move back this summer. Will I keep the same NIN or will I have to get a new one?

You keep your NIN for life - it’s like a SSN, it’s unique to you and you can’t have more than one.

If you don’t remember what yours is, you can find out here:
