    For the SDP you must live alone or be treated as living alone, so no other adults living with you. If there's other adults living with you they must either be registered blind or claim a qualifying disability benefit theirself, such as PIP/ADP daily living, DLA mid/high rate care or AA. 

    No one must be claiming either carers allowance or carers element of Universal Credit for looking after you.severe-disability-premium
    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.

    You mention a daughter at Uni but where does she normally live? Are you claiming for help with any rent? If so do you still claim a bedroom for your daughter? 

    Does she claim a qualifying disability benefit?

    Any daily living part of PIP qualifies you for SDP. See link https://www.entitledto.co.uk/help/severe-disability-premium
