Make sure you have only one ID number

When last have you checked your official documents? The department of home affairs published a list of people who have more than one identity number so make sure you’re not one of them.


In August this year there were more than 96 000 names on the list, which means many South Africans who could have one dropped.

“When two or more identity numbers are allocated to a person, one of the numbers and the corresponding ID document will be cancelled,” a notice issued by the department says.

If your name appears on the list, the department requests you approach your closest home affairs office to resolve the matter. The deadline for this is 31 December 2013
