    Never really noticed, but my ESA payments don't currently show my NI on my statements.

    Although I have a feeling that they may have done so in the past.
    Edit- I've just checked some 10 year old statements and they did show the NI number.

    It may be specific to your bank (or even your account type at that bank) what information about payment origins they show on your statements?

    PS. The NI information is linked to your payments, so that HMRC can check your bank accounts for income.

    I get paid at lloyds and it includes my NI number I guess it varies from bank to bank or building society. But also helps keep it secure from errors or fraud I don't know anyone that cannot remember their N/A number ingrained mentally that's for sure.

    I've just checked again and it depends which webpage I look at my account online, a summary statement page doesn't show it but another more detailed statement page does shown the NI. With mine there is no reference number following 'DWP EESA'.
    My old paper statements always showed the NI.

    So the DWP do reference payment by NI number, it's just what your particular bank (or particular statement) shows you.
