    Since you have been awarded enhanced daily living of PIP you qualify for the enhanced disability premium as well as the SDP.

    http://www.entitledto.co.uk/help/dis...ms-in-benefits

    Telephone them and tell them that you have been awarded the enhanced daily living of PIP and wish to claim the Enhanced Disability Premium. It should be backdated to when your new PIP award started.

    Hi all. I have a question regarding this.

    I worked all my days then woke up with MS Aug 2015 quite severe and haven't worked since,in a wheelchair mostly now. My question.
    I got ESA for 365 days cause I worked then it stopped I have applied again and am on assessment rate. Should I have got any of the disability premiums along with ESA. This maybe sounds wrong or whatever but at first I had no clue about benefits and only got a CAB advisor a few months ago helping me get it all fixed out. I get PIP enhanced on care and mobility now too.

    Might just be worth checking with one of the benefit calculators.
    there are three premiums
    Disability premium
    Severe DP
    Enhanced DP
    Anything expressed is my opinion only and is offered in good faith. It is either from my own experiance or what I have learned on my journey. Take it for what it is or leave it alone. With best wishes D.
