    There’s no disability premiums payable when claiming UC I’m afraid. 

    They are only payable on the legacy benefits such as Income Related ESA/JSA, Income Support or housing benefit. See link.
    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.
