    Disability Premium -who qualifies?

    Disability Premium -who qualifies? 17th Jan 09 at 10:28 PM
    Hello, I have tried looking for the answer on a few websites but am going round in circles, so hoping some kind soul here could explain/help me to understand.

    I am trying to work out if my husband should be entitled to Disability Premium.

    He has been on IB and DLA for more than a year now. The last correspondence I can find regarding his IB is from February 2008 and says the following: Basic Rate 84.50, Incapacity Age Addition 8.90, the amount each week before adjustments is 93.40. He gets paid 186.80 each fortnight. His DLA is 187 every 4 weeks.

    Am I right in assuming that he should then also be entitled to Disability Premium? :confused: From what I can make out he might, because he is on higher rate DLA and has been receiving these benefits for more than 52 weeks. Does anybody know how much this is and how he should apply, i.e. via his DLA or via his IB?

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks, Carol.
