Hi gang,

Hope you're all ok.
We finally found a lovely house in Calahonda.However, whilst my parents have been getting settled in there, I've been in the UK (freezing) looking after my Aunt who's ill and taking my A Level Spanish lessons but I have a job interview with Club La Costa in Mijas next Friday BUT I need a social security number etc.
I DO have my N I E number but that's not enough . Can anyone advise me if it's possible to get my paperwork in time (i dont get into Spain until next Tuesday)
Many thanks
Mark

I am not sure what you mean by a Social Security number. Please advise. For a job interview all you would need is a NIE.

Good luck at Club La Costa - nice if aged resort

Gus, what is the Spanish for this and is it the same as your NIE/NIF or CIF or SIP or .......

Perhaps it is not required in Valencia or Andalucia where I would have thought I would have needed one/heard about it etc etc.

I am not sure even what it could be used for! Why not just the NIE/NIF?

TIA

It was a social security number they wanted from my son when they wouldnt make him an appointment at the hospital. I went to the health centre in my local town and they gave him one!

Número de seguridad social or de afiliación. Yes, equivalent to UK national insurance no. You need one to work here. Normally for a full-time job the employer will get it.

I suspect they need your UK NI number as they pay you via a cheque that you have to mail to your UK bank. (last I heard)
So call them and ask if this is correct as you will not (as far as I know) get a Spanish NI number without first working here on a legal contract/becoming self employed.
