Severe disablement premium

fibrofognightmare71fibrofognightmare71 Member Posts: 9 Listener
Hi I’d like to ask if anyone knows if you get back dated Severe Disablement Premiums? I was in receipt of it back in November last year when my PIP got stopped after the renewal face to face. The SDP is related to the pip so was stopped straight away too. I’ve just heard that after months of waiting my reconsideration was successful. It was also found that my Atos Assessor had lied repeatedly in my report aswell. As I’m back in receipt of pip will my ESA Severe Disablement Premium be back dated too? Or is that lost for good? Because basically the lying assessor caused me to lose it so is responsible. Thanks for your time.

    If you're still claiming ESA and live alone or classed as living alone then yes it will be backdated to the date it stopped. You'll need to ring ESA and ask to fill out the IS10 form over the phone.

    Thankyou ! Forgive my denseness but do I ring my ESA provider? Job centre plus? Or DWP ? X

    Phone the DWP ESA department explain about SDP and ask for IS10 which can be completed over the phone.

    Thats the quickest option.
    I created one of the campaign election video for Labour, and Jeremy Corbyn,
    This is a new version of Emeli Sande, Hope "You Are Not Alone
    I highlighted everything that's wrong with this country from benefits, NHS etc, but now we have to put up with the hate now.
