PIP and national insurance

Hi...I came to UK in January from Southern Ireland to join hubby. I have a 28 old daughter with special needs. Nation Insurance number says no number for people not looking for job. I called the PIP from citizen office where I had gone for guidance. Ther promised to sent a form after a lengthy discussion of lack of NI number. Since Easter no form had been sent so I wrote them a letter in early June. No reply. I emailed them no reply. The fone line says you should give NI but she has no. 
How do I go about this and I wish she could join a day cetre so that she can make friend.

    Hello @Nkengasus I do not know the answer to this.

    Have you spoken to our advice helpline 0808 800 3333.

    Sorry I can not give you an answer. Good question though . Because every body has an National Insurance number when claiming for benefits or for work. So why I do not understand is not one issued to your daughter.

    Must have NI numbers in Southern Ireland do they.?  Not too clear what to say to you.

    All I do is ask our advice line.

    One of our team will answer if they can.

    Thank you, in Southern Ireland she had the number but it does not work here coz we came from Republic of Ireland not Northern Ireland. I got mine but she did not as she is not capable to hold a job. 

    I will call the help line you mentioned and thank you again.
