Your NPower ID (identification) is right inside your NPVN dashboard, the main thing is how to locate it, which this guide focuses on.

What is N-power ID?

Your N-power ID is your means of identification that you’re truely one of the beneficiaries of the job initiative programme of the All Progressive Congress-led government.

N-power ID is similar to NYSC State Code.

N-power ID Sample and Interpretation

The ID isn’t peculiar to the 2016 alone, but including the successful 2017 batch of 300, 000 volunteers.

Right in your NPVN dashboard is everything about you as far as the N-power programme is concerned: Your name, N-power ID, device selected if you’re 2016 batch, your banki details, state, and the batch you belong plus the N-power area (N-Tecah? N-Agro? N-Health? etc).

But we’re focusing on N-power ID in this post, we’ve covered every other things you need to know in other areas of programme.

One of the things Infobase pointed out in one of our previous posts was the activation of an identification allocated to every beneficiary. It’s called N-power ID, which you can check any time within your NPVN portal.


For instance, 2016 first batch of the programme will have ID like



  • NPVN:This means N-power Volunteer Network. It’s a sub-domain and portal specially created for applicants who have been successfully verified and already on the payroll of the empowerment programme.
  • OS: This is the acronym for your state of origin. OS in this instance means Osun State. It simply means that the volunteer is posted and serving in Osun State.

So, state like Ondo could be OD, Oyo State could be OY, Cross River State will be CR etc.

Please login to your N-power dashboard to check the state code if you are one of the N-power 2017 volunteers.

If you selected Ondo State during application and you saw OS upon login to your portal it means that you will be deployed to Osun State. In this case it’s advisable you APPLY FOR DEPLOYMENT right away or Correction of profile.

  • 2016: This means you are among the first batch that were onboarded in 2016. In this case it means you started receiving monthly stipend in December 2016. If you’re having problem with your some of your salaries, please check our article on HOW TO SEND A REMINDER TO NPOWER ABOUT BACKLOG PAYMENTS.

2016 simply means when you’re onboarded. That’s your batch. In this case the 2016 batch will read “1” signifying first batch.N-power ID onboard sign

If you’re 2017 batch, your year will be 2017.

  • 123456: This simply your allocation number. This varies, and it’s not the same.
