    Hi @trireme and welcome

    In theory this comes into practice in the spring of next, but I think you would be best advised to expect a review

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    No one knows exactly what the qualifying conditions are to be granted a 10 year award based on the speech by Amber Rudd. It could well be that you have to have enhanced rates for both components, you may have to have recognised conditions, you may well need proof that the impact on your life is stable and will never change, no one knows. 
    Sometimes politicians spout what they are hoping to get through but it could be challenged along the way by other MPs.

    You will have to wait for the DWP to officially tell you what will happen which maybe this year or next year or even the year after.
