    • If you’ve lost it, try contacting NIMC to see if they can provide a replacement or confirm your date of birth via other means.
  2. NIMC MWS Mobile ID App:
    • Download the official “NIMC MWS Mobile ID” app from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
    • Launch and log in to the app using your NIN and mobile number.
    • In the app, you can use the “Basic ID Verification” feature to view your first name, middle name, last name, and part of your date of birth (only day and month). The year of birth is hidden for security reasons.
  3. Visit a NIMC Enrolment Center:

    • Visit the center and present your NIN.
