    Enhanced disability premium

    You will get the enhanced disability premium if you are in the support group or if you get:

    Disability Living Allowance (high rate care component),
    Personal Independence Payment (enhanced daily living component), or
    Armed Forces Independence Payment.
    This is an extra £15.75 per week.

    Severe disability premium

    You will get the severe disability premium if you are single and get:

    Disability Living Allowance (middle or high rate care component), or
    Personal Independence Payment (standard or enhanced daily living component).
    There must also be:

    no other adults living with you (there are exceptions to this)and
    nobody that gets Carers Allowance for caring for you (the Carer's Allowance must be in payment)
    There are different rules if you live with a partner.

    The severe disability premium is an extra £61.85 per week.
    If you are single the severe disability premium (SDP) is included in your award if:

    you receive a qualifying disability benefit (Attendance Allowance, constant Attendance Allowance, the care component of Disability Living Allowance at the middle or highest rate or Personal Independence Payment daily living component at standard or enhanced rate); and
    no-one gets paid Carer's Allowance (CA) for looking after you (if your carer is eligible for CA but does not receive anything then they do not count); and
    you have no non-dependant adults living with you (unless they are also receiving a qualifying disability benefit or are registered blind)

    Just copied and pasted this of entitledto.co.uk


    so thinking that standard daily living on pip is fine?

    confusedlancs1,

    It would have been beter if you had kept this all in one place rather than having 2 threads going on the same question.

    I've just posted an answer in your other thread.

    To be honest I'm getting a bit 'confused-nuke' trying to follow the different answers in two places.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    Migration from ESA to Universal Credit- Click here for information.
