    Hi,


    I'm afraid you won't be entitled to the severe disability premium because you live with your wife, who works 16 hours per week and this means you won't be entitled to any top up on your Contributions based ESA.

    For those that don't know, part of the criteria to claiming the SDP is you must also live alone or be classed as living alone.
