    Severe Disability Premium backdated

    Severe Disability Premium backdated 3rd Oct 17 at 10:21 PM
    Hi all

    I currently get PIP and ESA. My father passed away in July this year,so I took over the tenancy and did a quick benefits check online, that is when I came across SDP.

    I have never heard of SDP before.So I rang the DWP in July this year and applied for it.I got it backdated to May this year, after doing more research I now believe I may be entitled to having my SDP backdated further.

    I was originally on DLA middle rate care and low mobility as well as Income Support before I was transferred over to ESA and PIP.I was transferred over from DLA to PIP last March.I was also transferred over from Income support to ESA in May this year.

    I had been on Income Support and DLA since the early nineties,but never got SDP,I now know I was eligible since no one has ever claimed Carers Allowance for me,and although I had lived with my dad for over 20 years he was on high rate DLA and Income Support to.So he was on a qualifying disability benefit so i would be classed as living alone.

    I have been in touch with the DWP and the lady on the phone told me I would not be able to get it backdated any further.Would that be right or is she wrong.

    No, they do not get SDP for that "mid-benefit week".
    It is taken off from the start of that benefit week.

    Just as, if DLA PIP is awarded from "mid-benefit week" SDP is added on to the claim from the start of the week.

    Everything "mid benefit week" will affect the claim from the start of that week. The only exceptions are:

    WRAG / SG components
    Prison and claim closures and starts in general.
    Re-instating a suspended claim from a specific date.


    If your "other benefit" continued to pay up to and including the last day of your benefit week, SDP (or whatever) would be taken off from the following week.

    i.e. the other benefit can be there for a partial week when it is starting
    but has to be a there for a full week, when it comes to an end.

    For goodness sake!

    A Severe Disability Premium is an extra amount that is included in some means-tested benefits to help with the cost of disability. It can be included in Income Support, income-related Employment & Support Allowance, income-based Jobseeker's Allowance, Guarantee Pension Credit and Housing Benefit; but not in Universal Credit. The Severe Disability Premium may be awarded to people who receive a qualifying benefit, these are:

    Attendance Allowance (or Constant Attendance Allowance paid with Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit or War Pension)
    Disability Living Allowance care component at the middle or highest rate
    Personal Independence Payment daily living component
    Armed Forces Independence Payment

    To get a Severe Disability Premium (SDP), the following must also apply:

    If you are single:

    You must be getting a qualifying benefit, and
    No one must be getting Carer’s Allowance for looking after you, and
    You must be living alone (have no non-dependents aged 18 or over living with you for example, an adult son , daughter or parent ), unless they are also receiving a qualifying disability benefit or are registered blind)

    The OP's late father was receiving a qualifying benefit.

    As clearly stated in the OP post they lived with their father who claimed HIGH RATE CARE DLA this menas that the OP is classed as living ALONE because DLA high rate care is a qualifying benefit... So yes you are wrong!

    Please stop littering these forums with incorrect advice, abuse and profanities.

    The OP wrote "I had been on Income Support and DLA since the early nineties"
    It seems to me that he may have eligible for SDP.

    We can all misinterpret a post, there is no call to abuse other posters because you read it differently to others.

    you really are quite ridiculous.

    yes the OP gets ESA and PIP.

    because they live with another adult who also receives qualifying disability benefits, they BOTH are entitled to the SDP.

    is this all too complicated for you to grasp?

    well obviously .....

    you are channeling personal information from beyond the grave in that case ?

    You don’t have to claim disability premium, it’s automatically added to your Income Support if you’re eligible.

    you didn't find it strange that the OP has never heard of it ??????.

    yes, the disability premium is automatically paid to anyone that is entitled to it.

    but we're talking about the severe disability premium. a totally different thing.

    but because you KNOW what you're talking about, you already knew that right?
