How do I update my details by logging in to my online account?

  • Log in to your online account and click ‘My account’ at the top of the page.

  • Click ‘Edit profile’ from the dropdown list.

  • Click ‘Edit personal details’.

  • You’ll see all of your current personal details. Select ‘Edit’ next to the detail you need to change.

  • Once you’ve made the change, click ‘Done’ at the bottom of the page to save any changes. You’ll see your updated details straight away.
  • We’ll need to see evidence before we can update some of your details like Title, Date of birth, Gender or Name. 
  • When you try to edit these details, there will be a form which you’ll need to download. 
  • The form will tell you what documents you’ll need to provide. 
  • Once we’ve received your completed form and evidence we’ll update your details within five working days and return any evidence to you. 
  • Please see Why do I need to provide evidence to update my details and what evidence do you accept? for more information.

To avoid postal delays, please use your Nest secure mailbox to send documents to us electronically. We can’t accept copies of birth, death, marriage or civil partnership certificates. If you are sending one of these documents, you’ll need to send the original document by post.

  • Enter the subject, message type and the text of your message in the Your message field.
  • Click ‘Attach file’ at the bottom of the message to upload your document. You’ll need to send separate emails from your Nest secure mailbox for each of your attachments.
  • Once complete, click ‘Send’.

When using your Nest mailbox:

  • Ensure the attachment file size doesn’t exceed 2 MB. Find out more about how to resize your image file.
  • Don’t compress or zip the files. 
  • Only .jpeg, .gif, .tiff, .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx and .pdf file types can be accepted.
