Does Severe (or Enhanced) Disability Premium count as "income" against ESA (Support group) benefit?
I am in the ESA support group, and have just been awarded the basic daily living component of PIP. Because of this, I have been given a new form by the DWP, regarding their Disability Premium benefits. From my understanding, I may be entitled to the Severe (and also perhaps the enhanced) Disability Premium(s).
My question is - if I am awarded either the SDP, and/or the EDP, will this count as "income" against my ESA (support group) benefit, and so reduce my current ESA benefit amount?
Thanks a lot for any comments.
