Excellent Mr Zola. When the time comes (if I need to make a new claim and am not managed onto UC) reading that list, I would either leave the mobile phone question blank, or if it was a `required field` I would put 11 x 00000000000 as my number! But give a valid email address for updates.

For ID purposes I would ring the claim number to make an appointment and go to my job centre rather than go through that GOV.verify.

Bank card = yes
Birth Certificate = yes
NHS card = yes
NI number for the call = yes.

:)
