    Hi,

    Yes, you can claim the SDP providing no one claims Carers allowance for looking after you. I would also advise you to cancel your carers allowance claim for looking after your wife and then your wife will also be able to claim SDP. This will make you better off than you claiming carers allowance for looking after her. More money, so a win win situation all round.

    Hi @jj1960 it's a simple form called IS10 asks you basic I formation, as you both recieve PIP I would just fill it in. It will not cause any problems.

    I live on my own and recieve this SDP, I do know couples that both recieve PIP can apply and recieve it. As one of you is on enhance and the other is on standered daily care. I'm only guessing here, I'm not sure if you both must be recieveing Enhanced daily living.

    As long as both of you receive the daily living PIP then you can both apply for the SDP. You don't both need the Enhanced daily living PIP.

     Cheers @poppy123456 hope your well.🥴 thanks for clearing that up. I knew if both party's where recieving PIP in the same household could recieve SDP.

    Wasent quite sure if both had to recieve daily living Enhanced.

    thanks for your replies was just concerned that claiming carers allowance would disallow the claim 
    I will fill in form and see what if anything comes

    No worries @Government_needs_reform that SDP confusion gets a lot of people confused ;)

    @jj1960 your most welcome hope it help you out. Good luck.


    @poppy123456 Thanks sweetie, I knew both in the same household could claim it but wasen't quite sure if they both had to be on Enhanced (daily living) So now I know as long as it either of the daily living components.

    I got mine as I'm on my own, and I'm on Enhanced daily living and did it over the phone when I first got my PIP and told ESA they then just ask me the questions on the IS10 form over the phone and was added straight onto my ESA. Easy.

    You're welcome. I claim the SDP too. I live with my daughter who i claim child benefit for because she's still a full time student. She claims both parts of PIP too, so i'd be entitled to the SDP even when she finishes full time non advanced education.

    @poppy123456 I guessed you got SDP well done, Sorry to ask but how long is your PIP for. Sorry for asking, as you might already know when I've posted before, mine is ongoing thank god without a Face to Face for now anyway, what annoys me is that they can review whenever so I don't believe it's safe now anyway.🥵 even though I will only get worse and deteriorate which was also stated in my report. 

    As im already on high rate and I won't need to ever tell the DWP I will only get worse. 😢😢😢😢

    As my DWP DM actually said (I agree you have great difficulty) Basicly she was on my side. "Happy days"  My PB assessment was done by a Paramedic I have a copy of my PA3 report and she was 100% spot on and gave me 38 points and to top it all the DM agreed with her full report also which was all justified in my favour.😀

    Yes your daughter and you would still be able to get child B for now then when she finishes full time, quite rightly can also claim SDP.
    👍🏻

    Sorry for the late reply I've been under the weather the last few days.. @poppy123456 😁

    I thought you was on a longer award than you got now? I won't be going through any of it again when my time is due, all I will do is fill out the forms again, I will then stall the process by dragging it out as I will not go to any assessments.

    Hopefully it won't be for another 9 years odd.
