NIMC Lists Fees for Correcting NIN Biodata on Mobile App


National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has announced the fees that Nigerians are required to pay to modify the data on their National Identification Number (NIN).

Accordingly Nigerians are now required to pay as much as N16,000 to correct their date of birth on the National Identification Number.

This followed the introduction of a mobile application for by NIMC for Nigerians to corrections to their name, date of birth, phone numbers on their NIN profile.

In a post via its official X handle over the weekend, NIMC revealed that a newly introduced mobile app allows users to change inaccurately registered names, dates of birth, and phone numbers.

The app and online platform enable users to sign up for the service. Following this, users are required to input their NIN, last name, and email address before accessing the data modification feature.

Initially, NIMC did not specify a fee for data modifications, but seven days later, in response to user complaints about technical issues with the mobile app, the commission announced varying fees for different self-service options to modify data such as name, age, date of birth, phone number, and email address linked to the NIN.

As it stands, to correct personal data on the NIMC App, you are required to pay the following fees:

N1,522.5 for Name Correction

N16,340 for Date of Birth Correction

N1,522.5 for Address Correction

N1,522.5 for Email Correction

It is worth noting that the NIMC has previously released fee schedules for various services related to updating information on the NIN database.

In the year 2021, the NIMC disclosed that individuals would need to pay fees ranging from N5,000 to N15,000 for rectifying inaccurate data in the NIN database.
