    Hi @rosieanna. I assume you and your husband live together? Unfortunately unless you also claim a qualifying benefit e.g. PIP/DLA/AA then he won't be entitled to SDP. The criteria for this is that there can be no other adult living in the house (unless they get a qualifying benefit) and no-one claims Carer's Allowance for them.
