Severe Disability Premium & Non-dependant status of close relative in Joint Tenancy
Last night, I commented on an old thread regarding SDP and Joint Tenancies.
I apologise to @poppy123456 if I confused the issue by posting on an old thread that had 2 different questions. I am new to the community so still unclear how everything works around here.
I am only referring to the original post, ie, the first question,
which refers to an ESA & PIP claimant who has a joint tenancy with a close relative
It seems in certain situations, not all, depending on when the joint tenancy began, there is still an entitlement to Severe Disability Premium.
I still think it needs clarification and would be grateful if others from Scope could contribute their interpretation of the DWP regulations which I referenced in my post last night.
Here is a link to the thread that was originally posted in February but has been added to since then - most recently last night.
