How to find out when I started to receive PIP?

I receive PIP and my wife receives CA. I need to contact the folk at NI as I'm missing NI credits. Is there anyway I can find out online when I started receiving PIP etc.?

Thanks

Colin

    Contact PIP by phone and ask them?  Alternatively check bank statements?

    Not an answer to the question you are asking, I'm afraid, but if you are thinking that you should be getting NI credits as a result of receiving PIP, then I beleive you are mistaken - according to this link PIP doesn't have NI credits associated with it, you'd need to apply for ESA.
    National Insurance credits: Eligibility - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
    Your wife should be recieving them with her Carers Allowance, however.

    As above you must be able to find out one way or another... bank accounts etc. But before you do are you searching for something useful anyway as NI credits don't come with PIP... they will for wife's CA. Are you receiving any other benefits (or work) for the period in question with missing NI Contributions (Universal credit for example have had issues for many updating NI contribs but I think that's resolved now)?

    You were advised in your previous thread back in September 2023 that for PIP you won't receive any NI credits. See thread. https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/discussion/6474862/pip-and-ni#latest
