    Assuming you are single, when you claim your State Pension you can apply for Pension Credit also. Did you do this?
    Pension Credit will top up your income if it is below a certain amount. It can include the Severe Disability Premium but there is no equivalent of disability income guarantee.
    For a single person with Pension Credit including SDP your weekly income (including the State Pension) would be £244.40.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
