Sorry if I have done this wrong but first time.
 I receive ESA income related in support group and receive PIP.  I now have to make a Universal Credit application for my 19 year old son as his education has finished as I am his appointee he receives PIP in his own right and I am his carer he receives NHS CHC funding and lives with me. Will I loose my Severe Disability Premium. Have looked online but information is confusing.

    There will be no change to your SDP because your son also claims daily living PIP. Being his appointee for his PIP will not cover the UC as well. For this you need to request to become his appointee.

    You should start a claim for UC as if you're him. Once you've submitted the claim you should put a message onto his journal and ask to become his appointee. Someone will then contact you to arrange this.

    When you claim UC please make sure you report his health condition. You will then need to send a fit note within 7 days of that. Then continue to send them without any gaps until a decision is made on his WCA.


    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
