Hi I’m on pip and esa I recently got back payment for the server premium esa but the woman on the phone said I’ve only got a set amount back dated to me because someone was claiming carers which I did not know someone was claiming carers allowance for me my grandad was power of attorney over me from when my mum passed away in 2015 I stayed with my grandma for about 3 months and was back in my home I lived with my mum and then I moved to a different area not close to my grandma and she should of stopped being power over me and should of stopped getting carers which I did not know because I wasn’t living with her I had a family nurse that was helping me from 2018 and she was the one that came to my assessment with me when I had another one from esa not my grandma. So shouldn’t I be owed more money of premium esa bevause my grandma was claiming carers for longer than she should of and we hardly talked as I lock myself away I like keeping to myself with my thoughts ect? How do I go about this?

    If someone was claiming Carer’s Allowance for looking after you then you are not entitled to the Severe Disability Premium for that period of time.

    Whether or not the claim was appropriate is a different issue. Not at all sure how you would go about trying to challenge it retrospectively. I’m fairly sure however that any such attempt would be likely to be highly stressful.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    I don't think anyone here can answer why she carried on claiming it. This certainly isn't something for an internet forum.  You may want to get some expert advice so start here. https://advicelocal.uk/

    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.

    If she wasn't caring for you for 35 hours or more per week then in theory she shouldn't have been claiming CA for looking after you, how you prove this to the DWP is another story, and at the end of the day you would be accusing her of fraud, have to agree that it would be both difficult and stressful.
