    We you claiming the SDP on top of your ESA? If so then that will be the reason for not being paid your ESA on time because you won't be entitled to this payment.

    Then you wouldn't have been claiming the SDP. It was most likely because your DLA stopped and affected the ESA payment as sometimes that can happen. It's nothing to worry about, your ESA will continue.

    I have no idea. To claim SDP you must live alone, or be classed as living alone, not one must be claiming carers allowance for looking after you and you need to be claiming mid/high rate care DLA or daily living PIP.
