    Hi,

    I'm afraid it makes no difference, you won't be able to claim the severe disability premium unless your husband claims a qualifying benefit himself.

    @Dotty123 Not actually true. Although in this case @kass can't claim it because of her husband, in some cases you can get SDP when you live with others. I do.

    Hi waylay 

    I have hard of this before in some case you can claim SDP but I don't know what cases it comes under 

    Like I said before my husband don't get any qualifying Benifits he's not allowed by law  he's on a visa

    Yes indeed, in some cases when living with others it's possible to claim it. For example, if you live with a partner that also claims a qualifying benefit or if you live with dependents that you claim child benefit for, or you house share with others but pay your share of the rent because you're named on a tenancy agreement. (except in cases where it's immediate family).  This means you're "classed as living alone" Unfortunately because you live with your husband this means you're not entitled to the SDP, even though your husband isn't entitled to any benefits in his own right.
