  1. Hi All, I am new to this forum, and I am currently going through the tribunal process with DWP and claiming of back dated SDP. I know it is a long shot but my son moved out jan 2013, and I genuinely never knew there was a SDP!! seems you need to be in the know to be able to get this premium. I made the Housing Benefit aware of the above changes, and thought no more of it, until a friend of my father's asked me if I thought his award for benefit was correct, they had overlooked his SDP when he was awarded PIP standard rate care, and they had revised his weekly esa to include the extra 61.00, he was given a back dated payment, DWP told him it was a oversight DWP should automatically award this premium to anyone on Qualifying rates of DLA/PIP which I am finding out more and more just does not happen. .. anyway my question is, at this stage in my tribunal it is still evidence collecting and DWP responding to what I submit, they use all the rules and regulations which I am lost with, I have been trying to find thru gov.uk website these files but I can not seem to find what I need, I have had someone quote me reg 6 (2) (e) which apparently I should include this as a response, also the fact that the rules and regs they are quoting only pertain to Benefit not a premium which sdp is.. ..if anyone can help me find the reg above or explain if it is still current, I would be most grateful, the 2nd part of this is I completed A questionnaire which I was asked to submit before jan 8th 2014, this form obviously gave my circumstances as at that point a year after son left home, and I ask for a explaination why the ESA was not back dated to when I applied, as with most benefits this is what happens, their response was well in a nutshell I was on a migration from one benefit to another and this is not treated the same? and spewed a lot of regulations in the response. I feel they have roll out certain regulations to suit them and I am always at a dis-advantage as I do not know the rules no one does apart from them, wondering if me even fighting them is worth it as it is causing me a great deal of strain, but its the principle of how certain people are treated in the benefits system, I am mentally ill sometimes I feel I am being discriminated against, like I should just accept what I am told and that's the end of it. sorry for the ramlings but I find it so hard to put into words, also my tribunal is being heard by letter as I am not able to attend hearing .
