I want some advice please as I'm worrying.
I recently been swapped over from ESA WR to ESA SG both income related I also get PIP mobility at a standard rate. Get housing benifit and counsil tax support

Does the ESA change anything in my housing benifit or council tax.
Am I entitled to Disabled premium or severe disability premium

    Hi,

    I see you're claiming the mobility part of PIP, do you claim the daily living part? if so does any claim carers allowance for looking after you?

    As you're in the Support Group for ESA then you'll automatically receive the Enhanced disability premium (ESA total £127.15 per week) you won't be entitled to the severe disability premium because you need to be claiming daily living PIP to be entitled to this.

    Your other benefits will remain the same.
