    Hi,

    If you're claiming Income Related ESA and no one claims carers allowance for looking after you then yes you can claim the SDP. It won't prompt a move to UC.

    If you are claiming income related ESA and if you are not claiming carers allowance for caring for you then I would start making a application for it. It will not prompt a move to UC. If you have any other questions please feel free to message me.

    The quickest way to claim SDP is by ringing ESA and asking to fill out the IS10 form over the phone. Claims can take 3-4 weeks.
