Hi, my daughter is in receipt of high rate pip for both elements, and is on universal credit, I think she should be entitled to sdp as I also get pip, I asked universal credit about this, they passed my query onto the sdp team, but they say that she should have claimed within 2 months of claiming uc, I was not in receipt of pip at that time so she would not have been eligible. Is this correct please?

    Hi,

    Unfortunately there are no disability premiums at all (including SDP) payable when claiming UC. They are only payable when claiming the old legacy benefits such as Income Related ESA/JSA and Income Support. See link for confirmation.

    Hope this helps.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    You're welcome. It will depend on which ESA she's claiming. If she's claiming New style ESA then no, there's no disability premiums payable on this. If it's the old Income Related ESA then it will depend on who she lives with and whether anyone is claiming carers allowance or carers element of UC for looking after her.

    Then she will be able to claim the SDP and to claim it the quickest way is to ring DWP/ESA and ask to fill in the IS10 form to claim the SDP.
