    Severe Disability Premium when homeless

    Hi was wondering if anyone can help me with my current situation with the DWP.

    I started claiming ESA on 1st April 2014 and was placed in the Support Group after the Assessment phase. I claim PIP and recieve the Enhanced Rate for the daily living component from 29th January 2015.

    My question is regarding the severe disability premium. I am aware you need to live alone to receive the premium, I lived in my own rented accommodation until 1st April 2015, I am now homeless and sleeping in my friends shop and using the shop address as a mail address until I manage to get permanent accommodation from the council.

    Should I be backdated the severe disability premium from the 29th January when the pip decision was made? Am I entitled the premium even although I'm homeless? I'm so confused and would appreciate any help anyone could give me?
