Is Your PPS Number On Birth Certificate?



No – a PPS number is not generated until 14 days after a birth is registered, so its not possible for the PPS number to feature on a birth certificate, even if you apply for a replacement, this is a carbon copy of the original and will still not feature the PPS number.

In order to get a copy of your PPS Number you will need identification, which in 90% of cases will be a birth certificate and photo ID such as a passport.
