    Hi @kass, so sorry to hear that your benefits have stopped and that you haven't even had a letter. Have you tried getting in touch with the DWP to see if they can tell you what happened? It may have been done in error.

    The problem you may be having is that SDP is paid if you're claiming a qualifying benefit; live alone (i.e. no non-dependant over 18 lives with you) and no-one claims CA for you. If your partner lives with you then you no longer live alone. SDP should have carried on for 3 months after they moved in and then it would ordinarily be correct that it ceases.

    No, sorry SDP does not continue for a further 3 months. It stops because youre no longer entitled to it because you don't live alone.

    I understand about the SDP now but I just want to clear something up my Statement of Entitlement for pip was 6th June 2016 and I got my first payment for SDP on the 24 July 2016....

    I did not get no backdated pay with my SDP should I have been due to any backdated pay from when my awared of pip was Entitled
