Your PPSN is a 7 digit number with 1 or 2 letters at the end and appears on your payslip as well as on other correspondence you may receive from the Office of the Revenue Commissioners or the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection.

What do I do if my PPS Number changes?

You will receive notification from Client Identity Services, Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection.   This notification must be submitted to the relevant payroll area to ensure your records are updated. If you are registered with the Teaching Council, please also advise them of your new PPS number.

How do I change my Address / Surname / Bank Account Details?
