    Esa and on appeal 8th Apr 18 at 10:41 PM
    Hi I'm looking for some advice on claiming esa at assessment rate while waiting appeal.
    I understand that I am not entitled to top ups at the moment. My question is can I claim severe disablement whilst on this stage. I was receiving it before failing WCA. I am in receipt of pip. Hope someone can advise me as I'm really struggling on the bare minimum

    Can you please tell us what stage of appeal you are at? Have you done a Mandatory Reconsideration? Are you claiming JSA at the moment?

    What do you mean I am not entitled to any top ups? Do you mean the WRAG /Support group components?

    Do you mean the Severe disability Premium (SDP) are you currently claim PIP daily living or DLA mid/high rate care? Is anyone claiming Carers Allowance for looking after you and do you live alone or classed as living alone?

    I read that wrong, sorry. I see you do have a PIP award, if it's a daily living award. Does anyone claim Carers Allowance for looking after you and do you live alone or classed as living alone? These are the criteria to claiming SDP and yes it can be claimed on assessment rate of ESA, of the ESA is Income Related.

    For others reading this then SDP can also be paid on Income Related JSA and Income Support but NOT Universal Credit.

    Have you had to appeal an ESA decision before? I understand that if you have it can affect whether or not you can be paid during later appeals.
    Unless I say otherwise 'you' means the general you not you specifically.

    Hi and thanks to you all for your responses.
    I was a bit vague with my question wasn't I, sorry I will try again to explain.
    I am currently appealing my esa decision. I have gone through mandatory reconsideration and at appeal stage waiting for a hearing date.
    I was in receipt of jsa but have been reinstated to esa while waiting my appeal.
    I have been put back onto assessment rate which is 73.10 a week.
    I wanted to know if anyone could advise me about SDP which I was getting prior to going back on assessment rate. I know I am not able to claim for extra from support or WRAG groups.
    I didn't offer far before this but now I can't afford to go anywhere at all on this money. I have a disability and recieve pip.
    Thanks everyone

    The Severe Disability Premium premium can be paid on the basic rate and the assessment rate of ESA and JSA so if you were getting the SDP before then you should continue to get it.

    Were you paid it on JSA?

    What rate of PIP are you on?

    Good luck with the appeal.
