Proof Documents for your Application
Proof of person (proving name and age), proof of residence and proof of photograph are all required to be verified as part of your application. If applying in-person at a Validation Point all proofs provided must be originals, however if applying via post or email please send clear photographs or scans of your proofs - please do not send any original ID evidence.

If a Local Authority Agent is in any doubt about the legitimacy of any documents presented they may ask for additional proofs or reject a customer’s National Entitlement Card application. Remember that the NEC can be used as proof of age as well as proof of entitlement for many services and the card application verification is critical to many services.
