I would be entitled to severe disability  premium i have been on esa since October 2017  just confused.  The front letter  was titled the Ilford  interventions  esa the sdp form had  benefits intergrity  centre on and the pre paid envelope has the FEPS  address on I'm very confused

    @faydhar you will have nothing to worry about if you've recieved a form called an IS10 just fill it in. Then they will pay you with your ESA if entitled.

    If you haven't recieved the IS10 form then I don't know what else it could be..

    I highlighted everything that's wrong with this country from benefits, NHS, UC etc, but now we have to put up with the hate now that is the Tories.

    @faydhar there you go, just fill it in and send it back I knew it wasen't nothing to worry about.... But I needed to know it was the right form first before advising any further.. The reason is more than likely is they've seen you should have and may have been able to claim SDP.

    I take it you recieve DLA Middle or High rate care, or PIP any rate daily living.

    Edited to add, I take it you live on your own and knowone claims carers Allowance  for you to help you.

    Yes i recive  high rate care and high rate mobility on pip  I recived that for the past 2 years and my Esa claim has been for the past 1 year in which I never recived the sdp premium  I have no non dependants living with me .. it was the FEPS  .. and intergrity  department  that threw me off  because when you search it comes back as fraud department

    @faydhar It looks to me as if you will get SDP okay now as to me you fit the criteria, it dosent take into account mobility only Care/Daily living for which you fit that criteria for.

    Living own your own.. tick.
    PIP Daily living ..tick.
    Knowone else claiming care allowance on your behalf or for you..tick.

    So now just fill it in and get a copy of what you've done and send it recorded delivery.

    Dont worry yourself regarding the fraud thing... The IS10 that's the key point here.

    hi, I also, had this, and I have sent it all back. but i have got myself into a right state. i feel like a criminal when I haven't done anything wrong.(think its the fraud and error bit) I suffer with dreadful panic and anxiety, which in turn is making my pain worse. sdp is added to my esa  at mo, is this a review. my pip changed to enhanced on both in the last year due to my spine and limited mobility. no-one claims carers allowance for me either. i feel sick, tearful . :(
