    It's paid every fortnight paid with your ESA

    I created one of the campaign election videos for Labour, and Jeremy Corbyn,
    This is a new version of Emeli Sande, Hope "You Are Not Alone
    I highlighted everything that's wrong with this country from benefits, NHS, UC etc, but now we have to put up with the hate now that is the Tories.

    Hi,

    Your other post here says you've applied for UC, is that correct? https://community.scope.org.uk/discussion/59638/lanlord-went-for-holiday-in-irland#latest

    Were you previously claiming ESA?

    What's the reason for you claiming UC? possible a house move?

    If the SDP is in payment then you won't be able to claim UC because you claim SDP and you'll be able to claim housing benefit.

    Because you're claiming SDP then you can't claim UC, i'm very surprised you were even able to start the claims process off to be honest. Yes, cancel that claim then once you've done that you need to ring your local council and ask to claim housing benefit because you're claiming severe disability premium and you can't claim UC.

    Hi @Weirdworld, as Poppy says, as you're in receipt of SDP, you're unable to claim UC and they should flag this and cancel your claim. You do need to apply for Housing Benefit from your local council. You could give the SDP helpline a call on 0800 181 4049 (0800 012 1331 if you're in NI) and they'll be able to advise you about what your next steps should be.
