Hi, hoping someone can help me? 

From 2017 I was getting  PIP standard rate daily living and mobility. After receiving this award I was surprised at the time to also be award disability premium and also severe disability premium onto my legacy benefit which is income support.

Today I received my review award and I have now been awarded enhanced for both daily living and mobility. 

My question is will my disability premiums change at all? I cant seem to find info anywhere but have read there is also an enhanced disability premium but surely you cant get 3 premiums at once? 

Any advice would be welcome. Thank you x

    You will retain the existing premiums and also be entitled to the enhanced disability premium.

    @calcotti thanks for that. I never imagined I would be entitled to 3 premiums at once. Will this just be automatically added onto my income support? Thanks again for your time x

    I’m not sure if it will be automatic, it may be worth ringing IS.
