Scope Severe Disablement Premium
I asked for some advice a few weeks ago
re: P.I.P. (M.R) and also…
I was sent an application form for Severe Disablement Premium.
The DWP sent me this application I did not request this….
Anyhow this afternoon Wed 31.7.018 I
made two enquiries on the above claims.
The P.I.P claim is still being decided, they have received the M.R., was given advice that it would take about another two weeks… This was confirmed a few minutes later by text.
I also enquired about the Severe
Disability Premium (SDP).
They could not help me with this but was advised to ring my local Job Centre….
This I did (after almost twenty mins
waiting) and divulging personal info..
I was told that I was not entitled to this because I live with my brother.
If anything happened to me I could always call upon my brother to help me.
So the case was closed!
But…my brother works nights, and I am out the house during the day because he is sleeping.
This time I spend in my local library (as when typing this) so I am on my own during the night.
Things have happened to me during the night…incontinence, falling whilst going to the toilet because of the gout (excruciatingly painful) leading to incontinence…
Like most people I have good and bad days.
But although I do not like admitting this I have just turned fifty, and things are getting worse.
Should I take this decision lying down
and accept the SDP decision or should I go to the C.A.B (they are
worth their weight in gold) and appeal.
Thank you for any attention on this….
